Well-known Malayalam star Prithviraj Sukumaran, who has over 100 films to his credit as an actor, is making his directorial debut with upcoming Malayalam thriller Lucifer, which stars superstar Mohanlal in the lead.

With the project currently in post-production and gearing up for release on March 28, Prithviraj took to Twitter over the weekend to thank Mohanlal for being part of the project.

“From growing up watching his films to supervising his dubbing for my debut directorial! I couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Lalettan Mohanlal (sic),” he posted.

The genre of the film still remains a mystery, but the industry grapevine suggests that it could be an emotional thriller with good dose of action.

In December 2018, Prithviraj took to Twitter to share a heartfelt post on the experience of directing Mohanlal, who plays a character called Stephen Nedumpally in the film.

“Today, Lalettan bids adieu to Lucifer and Stephen Nedumpally. It has been a journey like no other for me. When I took up the challenge of directing a huge film like Lucifer, most of my well wishers told me it wasn’t the wisest decision I’ve made and that as an actor, it’s a foolish investment of time,” Prithviraj wrote.

Prithviraj further wrote that he learnt more about cinema and his craft in the last six months than the 16 years preceding it. He also thanked Mohanlal for believing in him.

“Directing you has been the absolute highlight of my career regardless of how many ever films I direct or even if I’ll never direct again.”

Also starring Vivek Oberoi, Tovino Thomas, Indrajith and Manju Warrier in crucial roles, the film has been produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas.
