In December, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal had announced the title of his upcoming film with director Jeethu Joseph. The duo had earlier collaborated for the 2013 film Drishyam which was a huge hit and was remade in four other Indian languages.
Recently there were rumours that the film titled Ram starring Mohanlal and Trisha has been dropped. The director took to his Facebook page to clear the rumours. "In the last two-three days, I have been getting calls and messages asking whether I have shelved my Mohanlal movie 'RAM' and planning another project. We had to stop the work of 'RAM' due to the spread of COVID-19 Virus, but it will resume shoot once the virus threat is down in the UK and Uzbekistan. Since Kerala is one of the few places in the world where Corona has been controlled effectively, it is likely to start the shoot early here,” he wrote in his Facebook post.
“Considering this possibility, in the meantime, I am thinking of a film which has its shoot entirely in Kerala but this doesn't mean in any way that I have abandoned the project 'RAM'. It's just being delayed due to the circumstances. Jeethu Joseph,” he further wrote.
This clarification from Jeethu Joseph has brought relief to Mohanlal and Trisha fans. The director also mentions that he is working on another project which will be shot completely in Kerala, and this news has also got the fans excited and would like to know more about this film by director Jeethu Joseph.
