No, it is not a gangster drama. According to reports, Meera Jasmine has also been roped in for an important role. It is said to be a road movie. She was last seen in 10 Kalpanakal, which came out in 2016. Neerali is said to be Mohanlal’s first release this year even as his much-awaited film Odiyan is fast nearing completion. Mohanlal had earlier said Neerali is “packed with a lot of action and adventure.”
Ajoy has assembled a solid star cast for his maiden project with Mohanlal. The project is bankrolled by Santhosh T Kuruvilla under the banner of Moonshot Entertainment and famous cinematographer Santosh Thundiyil, who has films like Rustom, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Krrish to his credit, is also part of the project. Actors Parvathi Nair, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Saikumar and Prakash Raj among others play pivotal roles in the film. The shooting of Neerali, which is directed by Ajoy Varma, has been going on in Mumbai. The title tagline reads ‘Octopus Do or Die’, which sounds like the codename of a spy operation. Ajoy has also roped in Bollywood stunt choreographer Sunil Rodriguez for the project.
