Actor-director Lal’s next venture as screenwriter, Honey Bee 2.5, will hit the screens by July end. 
According to Lal, the post production of  the movie is in full swing. Honey Bee 2.5 was shot in the locations of his last venture Honey Bee 2 and narrates the tale of an aspiring actor landing up at a shooting location. Asif Ali’s brother Askar Ali and Lijimol play the lead roles. 

“It is an experimental venture, but a very worthy one. Though it has new faces in the lead, the movie boasts a huge star cast as well. Every actor in Honey Bee 2, including Asif Ali, Bhavana, Lena, Sreenivasan and Harisree Ashokan, will be there in Honey Bee 2.5 too,” says  Lal.  

The actor, however, agrees the dismal performance of Honey Bee 2 has affected the movie. “Had Honey Bee 2 done well in the box office, I could have easily released it. But, its poor performance can make the audience a bit apprehensive.

So, we have decided to market it well as it deserves that,” he adds. Lal says the only challenge before Honey Bee 2.5 is the first day crowd.  “I am sure Honey Bee 2.5 will have enough crowds from the second day, owing to word-of-mouth publicity. We have made a good movie and the audience will love it,” he says.


The actor, however, is now on a break after playing a headmaster in an offbeat venture Chandragiri.  “I am presently on a break from acting  because I had to shave off my moustache and beard for the role in Chandragiri.

Though many offers come, I can’t take them up as my growing beard would affect the continuity of the character,” he says. Lal jokes he can’t be himself without his trademark beard. He is also all praise for Chandragiri. 

“Jayachandran, a school teacher, came to me a few months ago with this script. It narrates the tale of Kasargod  and the many issues plaguing it. I was impressed by the kind of effort and dedication Jayachandran had for the subject. It is an ode to the many people who struggled for the betterment of the place and failed,” he adds.
