The buzz is that director Neason, whose debut film Jilla featured Vijay and Mohanlal in the lead, is likely to team up with Tollywood actor Mahesh Babu next.
We hear that if the project is firmed up, Mohanlal will play a key role in it. Though certain sections of the media have been reporting that it is the remake of Jilla, a reliable source says it is not the case. Says the source, “A leading production house has initiated talks with Neason and Mahesh Babu. Neason is yet to narrate the script to the actor. Only after Neason meets the actor, the project will be confirmed. It is an entirely new script and it will not be a remake of Jilla. Talks are on with Mohanlal also for a crucial role and perhaps, because of Lal’s involvement, people might have assumed that this was a remake.”
We also hear that once the film is confirmed with Mahesh Babu, it will be made in three languages. It will be launched in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
