Mohanlal will act in two art films this year. The first one will be in K P Kumaran's 'Aakashagopuram' and the second P T Kunjumohammed's 'Paradeshi'. 'Aakashagopuram' will be based on the famous play, 'The Master Builder' by the Norwegian writer Henrick Ibson and will be a big budget film and most probably this would be Lal's Christmas release. The shooting of 'Paradeshi' where Mohanlal enacts the role of a Pakistani citizen in Malappuram will begin on June 17. Kunjumohammed earlier films were Magrib and Gershom which had Murali in both films. The film will be produced by A & A Productions.
