    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.

    The movie, which will be conceived in a historical fiction format,
    will feature two Japanese and one Mongolian song. A R Rahman, one of
    India's greatest composers of all time, will be handling the music
    department.
    Though a period drama, the movie will be made keeping
    the commercial aspects in mind. Production cost is estimated to cross
    INR 60 crores ($15 million).

    Director Albert Speaks:

    How did Jackie Chan become part of the project?
    I contacted Jackie Chan's office in Japan. They asked me to mail the
    basic concept of the story. What really attracted me to the story was
    the struggle the Asians under-went, in their attempt to get freed from
    British colonial rule.

    Did you meet Jackie Chan in person?
    Yes I did. And he thanked me for making him part of such an ambitious
    project. Jackie's role will be that of a saviour who helps Nairsan
    during the fight in the Mongolian desert.
