Pulimurugan to speak Chinese, Vietnamese and English: Mohanlal
• Pulimurugan is Mohanlal's biggest release in terms of screen count.
• The action-packed adventure directed by Vysakh broke collection records in Mollywood.
• The makers are now planning to dub the film into foreign languages including Chinese and Vietnamese.
Buoyed by the roaring success of Pulimurugan, Mohanlal’s action-packed Mollywood blockbuster, the makers of the big-budget movie are planning to dub it into Chinese and Vietnamese besides English and Hindi versions to tap the international market.
In an exclusive interview with Asianet News, Mohanlal said that Pulimurugan is the best action movie in his career. "Except for three or four international movies, films based on man-animal conflict are rare, especially with tigers. So the makers are planning to dub Pulimurugan into foreign languages including Chinese and Vietnamese apart from Hindi and English," the versatile actor said.
Giving a break to his busy shooting schedule, Mohanlal watched an exclusive screening of Pulimurugan at Mumbai with his close friends.
When asked about the long action sequences in the film, touted as the best action performance by Mohanlal, the superstar said that Pulimurugan was indeed his career best action flick. “It is true...Only that such a movie happened only now. Let’s pray for a bigger action film to follow. I’m waiting to do a greater action film,” he smiled.
“I’m happy that 180 days of hard work paid off,” Mohanlal said referring to the long shooting schedule of the film.
After watching the action-thriller, actresses Isha Talwar and Nadia Moidu complimented the actor on his performance and said it was a treat to watch the movie with the hero.
“I’m really excited to be here,” said a gleaming Talwar told Asianet News. “It’s really nice to watch the film with him.”
“Lalettan (Mohanlal) has put in a lot of effort in doing the action scenes in the film. Action lovers will certainly love it,” Moidu said.
Released on 7 October, Pulimurugan, is the first Malayalam film to have 858 shows on its opening day. The film that broke all collection records in Mollywood continues to be screened in packed houses.
