Mohanlal and Jackie Chan unite for Indo-Japanese project "Nairsan"

Mohanlal, one of India's greatest actors of all time, is joining hands with martial arts superstar Jackie Chan in the Indo-Japanese period cinema "Nairsan". The movie tells the story of freedom fighter Nairsan (Mohanlal) who fought against British colonialism in Japan. Jackie Chan will be seen fighting along side Nairsan in his war against colonialism.

Director Albert who made the critically acclaimed Indian cinema "Kanne Madanguka" will handle the story and direction. Actor Mohanlal is said to be very much thrilled about his character.

Nairsan, whose real name is Ayyappan Pilla Madhavan Nair, was born to a tamil Brahmin father and malayalee mother. He was born and bought up in Trivandrum, Kerala, India. Even during school days, Nairsan and his friends fought against the British rule in India. Later he was forced to leave to Japan via Sri Lanka and continued the fight against British rule from there.

"My parents have actually met Nairsan in person. He used to live in Poojappura which is near my home", said a thrilled Mohanlal.

The movie will cover Nairsan's entire Japanese episode and will feature his sincere attempts to overthrow the British government. The entire screenplay in English is ready. Works on Japanese translation is progressing fast.

Mohanlal has alloted a total of 125 days for the movie. Nairsan will have a world-wide release. In Asia the movie will be in Japanese while it will be dubbed in English for other parts of the world. Jackie Chan will join for a 15 day shoot starting September 1st.

The action sequences featuring Jackie Chan and Mohanlal will be shot at the Mongolian desert in the Russia-China border. The stunt choreography is by Jackie Chan Stunt Team. Director Albert, who is leaving for Japan next week, will meet JC Stunt team to discuss about the rehearsals and other preparations needed for the fight scene.
