Ever since it was announced, expectations have been high for Mohanlal-starrer Lucifer—actor Prithviraj's directorial debut. Fans got a treat on Tuesday morning, as Mohanlal took to his official Facebook page to share the title font of the film.
Giving prominence to the letter L, the title font, with a mix of mirror images, has been designed by Anand Rajendran. Deepak Dev's background score adds to the intrigue. Scripted by Murali Gopy, Mohanlal's Lucifer, is bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. Though there have been no official announcements on the casting, there are rumours of Manju Warrier playing the lead lady in the film.
In September 2016, Mohanlal had confirmed the project in a Facebook post. He wrote: "Here I have a big news for my million splendid audience about my upcoming project. A big budget movie from Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas, which sees collaboration of two icons of Malayalam film industry behind the camera for the first time, who are also distinguished for their uniqueness.
"Prithviraj, son of my dearest Sukumarettan, doing his directorial debut and Murali Gopy, son of our Gopiettan, penning story and script ... And the movie's name is 'Lucifer'.”
According to reports, Murali Gopy had scripted this film a few years back and it was made for director Rajesh Pillai. However, the project was held up due to the director's untimely demise.
