Mohanlals most ambitious movie shelved!

Actor Mohanlal and director VA Shrikumar Menon had announced that they are teaming up with veteran writer MT Vasudevan Nair for a Rs 1000 Crore budget movie titled Randamoozham, one of the most notable works that MT has written. The story is a version of the Mahabharata from the perspective of epic hero Bheema.

MT has handed over the screenplay of 'Randamoozham' four years ago but the director failed to complete the movie within the time specified in the agreement. In 2019, the veteran backed out of the project and also expressed his disinterest to proceed with the film. Following this, MT approached the court to stop Shrikumar from doing the film.
