Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has many interesting projects lined up and one of them is 12th Man which will be directed by Jeethu Joseph. On Tuesday (17), the shooting of the film started and Aashirvad Cinemas, the producers of the film, took to Twitter to inform everyone about it.

They posted, “Here we begin our next #12ThMan #Mohanlal #JeethuJoseph #AntonyPerumbavoor @Mohanlal @antonypbvr.”

12th Man will be Mohanlal and Jeethu Joseph’s fourth film together. The actor-director duo has earlier worked together in movies like Drishyam, Drishyam 2, and Ram (yet to release).

It also marks Malayalam New Year on Tuesday (17), so Mohanlal took to Twitter to wish his fans. He tweeted, “മഹാമാരിയൊഴിഞ്ഞ്, നല്ല നാളുകൾ തിരികെ വരട്ടെ. ഐശ്വര്യസമൃദ്ധമായ പുതുവർഷം ആവട്ടെ നമ്മൾ ഓരോരുത്തർക്കും.ഏവർക്കും ഹൃദയം നിറഞ്ഞ ചിങ്ങപ്പുലരി ആശംസകൾ #Chingam1 (Get rid of the plague and let the good times come back. Happy New Year to all of us. Happy Chingappulari to all # Chingam1.”

Talking about other films of Mohanlal, apart from Ram and 12th Man, the actor will be seen in movies like Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, Aaraattu, Barroz: Guardian of D’Gama’s Treasure, Bro Daddy, and L2: Empuraan.

Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham was slated to release in theatres last year, but due to the pandemic the film was postponed. The makers later decided to release it this month, however, once again the release date has been pushed.
