Farhan Akhtar is going to play a pivotal role in Lijo Pellissery’s Antichrist – but not in Mollywood, in Bollywood.
Yes, that’s right – the movie which was dropped from Mollywood because of its huge production cost of Rs. 15 crores, is soon to be taken up by a top Bollywood production company, in tie up with Mollywood’s August Cinemas and Farhan is going to share screen space with none other than Prithviraj.
Initially, in the Malayalam version, the three key roles were to be played by Prithviraj, Fahad Fazil and Indrajith. Now, it seems, Prithviraj will stay in the mix but the third actor still remains undecided upon.
Farhan is a huge admirer of Mammootty and even went so far as to say that “The world recognizes him because of Mammootty.”
The audience will have to just wait and see how the thriller from Mollywood’s own Lijo with Prithviraj in it, is going to play out in the ‘big bucks’ world of Bollywood.
