Trisha opposite Mohanlal in Jeethu Joseph film?

Trisha, who made her Mollywood debut last year opposite Nivin Pauly in Hey Jude last year, is the front runner to play Mohanlal’s heroine in Paapanasam director Jeethu Joseph’s forthcoming project.

The film will mark Mohanlal’s second collaboration with the director after Drishyam and Trisha’s second Malayalam film after Hey Jude (in which he starred opposite Nivin Pauly).

According to reports, it’s a big-budget project which will be shot in both India and abroad. Some of the filming locations will include Cairo, UK, Canada, Kerala, and Delhi.

Chennai-based Abhishek Films is bankrolling the project. The shoot, which is expected to begin by November, has been scheduled to go on for 100 days.

Despite many rumours that the film will be a Malayalam-Tamil bilingual, it is said that Jeethu is making the film only in Malayalam.

Meanwhile, Mohanlal’s latest release Ittymaani – Made In China has received huge thumbs up from audience, but critics have come out with mixed opinions.

Currently busy with the post-production of his yet-untitled Tamil film starring Jyotika and Karthi; Jeethu is looking forward to begin work on his new project.

In his upcoming Tamil film, Karthi and Jyothika will be seen playing siblings.
