Chennai, Feb 18 : Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has joined hands with southern director Arun Vaidyanathan to work in the upcoming comedy "Peruchaazhi".
"The film will be primarily shot in the US. The principal shooting will start from the end of this year as soon as the pre-production and visa formalities are done," Vaidyanathan said in a statement.
"I am a huge fan of Mohanlal's humour and he will fit the role perfectly. He was bowled over by the novel idea behind the film," he added.
An American actress is likely to play the female lead, but the hunt for the right face is still on.
Meanwhile, Vaidyanathan will start working on his next Tamil project from April. The official announcement for the same will be made soon.
