Actor-turned-director Madhupal, who won critical acclaim for his recent outing, Ozhimuri, is currently busy with his next project.
Buzz is that the director will team up with superstar Mohanlal for the first time in his latest venture. The director had apparently met the actor in Trivandrum on the set of Priyadarshan's Geetanjali and had a discussion with him about the project.
A source close to the development says, "Madhupal had a talk with Mohanlal and the latter has expressed a keen interest in the project. However, things are still in the initial stage." The script and story will be written by Jeyamohan, who had earlier scripted for Madhupal's Ozhimuri.
Since Lal's kitty is full this year, the actor has reportedly asked the director to wait until next year. After completing Priyadarshan'sGeethanjali, Mohanlal will start shooting for Jeethu Joseph's next film. Mohanlal has also signed up for V M Vinu's comedy flick, which will see him playing a Sardar.
