After the huge success of Lucifer, the second film, Empuraan, was announced as Mohanlal in the lead role. Being the sequel to the all-time biggest box office success in Malayalam cinema, Empuraan has created a lot of anticipation among moviegoers, especially Mohanlal fans. They celebrate every update to the film. The social media posts of the cast members are the reason why Empuran is again in the news these days.
When Prithviraj came to meet Mohanlal at his residence in Dubai, Mohanlal's friend Samir Hamza made an Instagram story. There was also a reference to Emburaan in his story. Later, Prithviraj shared a page of Empuraan script through Facebook. Screenwriter Murali Gopi also shared a picture of Stephen Nedumbally, played by Mohanlal in Lucifer. Now Empuraan producer Anthony Perumbavoor has also shared a picture through social media. Anthony has shared a picture of himself with Mohanlal and Prithviraj from Ashirwad's office. He also added "Empuran loading soon" as a caption to the post.
There were earlier reports that the shooting of the film would begin in mid-2023. It was also reported that the film Empuraan would hit theatres by mid-2024. But there is no official confirmation in this regard. Prithviraj's directorial debut was a huge success, and the film world watched with curiosity. At the time of the announcement, Prithviraj had said that Empuran is a film that needs a bigger canvas than Lucifer. He added that the second part can be considered because of the success of the first part.
