Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will play the lead in director Nanda Kishore’s upcoming magnum opus ‘Vrushabha’, a film that is to be shot in Malayalam and Telugu and dubbed in several other languages including Tamil and Kannada.
The film is to be produced by AVS Studios, founded by former Netflix executive Abhishek Vyas. It is to be made as one of the six films that AVS intends to produce across languages and genres in its first phase.
Sources say that the film, which will be high on emotions, will revolve around the conflict between two emotions that run the world – love and revenge.
The film is a high-octane father-son drama, with megastar Mohanlal essaying the role of the father. A big Telugu star is likely to play the part of the son. The star who will play the son is to be announced later.
