New Delhi: Two times national award winning Malayalam superstar Mohanlal was in the Capital for the screening of his forthcoming film Akashagopuram.
Directed by P Kumaran, the film will release on August 22.
Based on a play titled, The Master Builder, originally written by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen back in 1892, the Malayalam film focuses on the life of an ambitious English architect Albert Samson, played by Mohanlal.
“This architect is a representation of a human, who has all the qualities love, greed and passion. He doesn't want anyone to overcome him and he fears that someone might take his place,” says Mohanlal.
Apart from playing an English architect, Mohanlal's other international connection is a Japanese film on the life of legendary freedom fighter Nair San, also titled as Nair San, where he would be sharing screen space with Jackie Chan.
“You can call this as a challenge because I had to learn both Japanese and Chinese for the movie as I will also dub for the movie. It is a story of a Japanese freedom fighter of Tamil origin. I can’t speak much on it,” says Mohanlal.
So will Mohanlal be doing some Jackie Chan style stunts in the movie, is a question that many would ask.
“Yes, but not with Jackie Chan. He will come and save me,” says Mohanlal.
