Touted to be Indias most expensive film, VA Shrikumar directorial Randamoozham, starring Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in the role of Bheema, is reportedly going to be made at a budget of Rs 1000 crore.

In April 2017, Mohanlal had spoken about Randamoozham and his fascination with the mythological character of mighty Bheema. He made an interesting observation that there was more to Bheem beyond his large body frame. “Like most children in India, I too grew up listening to the tales of Mahabharata and Ramayana. For most people, Bheema was a loyal brother with a huge body and a large appetite. It was after reading MT Vasudevan Nairs novel Randamoozham, I understood the emotional side to Bheema,” Mohanlal said.

The actor added that when he read Randamoozham, he never imagined it to become a film. “MT sir was the one who suggested my name for Bheemas role and Im thankful to him as an actor for that. But Im overwhelmed when I think of it now. Bheema has been part of my life for a long time now. I had become MT sirs Bheema in 1985 film Rangam,” he said.
