Now you know who we’re referring to here! For all the kids of the 90s, the name Shaktimaan is synonymous with one man – Mukesh Khanna! And for those of you, who are a little older, perhaps you will remember him as Bheeshma from B R Chopra’s magnum opus Mahabharat series.
Yes folks, Mukesh Khanna is to appear in Mammootty’s next film which is Rajadhi Raj and before you ask, no – we don’t know yet in what role..
But it certainly has to be a pivotal one for the actor/producer to make his first foray in to Mollywood in all these years.
Rajadhi Raja is being directed by Ajai Vasudevan. The scripting of the film has been done by the Sibi- Udayan duo and for all intents and purposes, this one is reported to be a mass entertainer with all the right ingredients.
Raai Lakhsmi (formerly known as Lakshmi Rai) is the one tackling the female lead in this one and she is to play Mammootty’s wife. The couple, in this flick, have a daughter name Durga whose role is played by a yet unknown starlet.
Supposedly, Mammootty’s character is a petrol pump owner in this one and a family man before certain events affect him and his family. Then the story picks up pace..
Raai and Mammukka have been paired up before in hit movies like Chattambinadu and Annan Thambi, and so if that’s any indication, this one too has all the signs of being one along those lines – a fun, family film!
The cast also has a slew of comedians in the mix and therefore, it definitely will not be lacking in the laughs department.
