Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar are coming together in producer Vajreshwari Kumar's new film to be directed by Giriraj. And Mohanlal confirmed about it by tweeting, "Hi friends, my next project will be a Kannada movie along with Puneeth Rajkumar.'
Vajreshwari Kumar said, "Yes, both Mohanlal and Puneeth Rajkumar have okayed the story. Rajesh Nair, a close friend of Mohanlal helped us to get the actor into Sandalwood again. We will start shoot by next month, once Puneeth is back from his US trip."
Rumour has it that the film is more or less a remake of the Hollywood film, Slumdog Millionaire. "As of now, I can say, it is not a regular subject for both the actors. We will have Ilayaraja scoring the music for this movie," said the filmmaker. Mohanlal was last seen as Taxi driver in the Kannada film, Love.
