Mohanlal's 2019 blockbuster, Lucifer, was the maiden directorial effort of actor Prithviraj Sukumaran. The political action-thriller turned out to be Malayalam cinema's highest grossing film worldwide, despite getting an average response from the critics. Fans loved Mohanlal's powerful role of a mysterious kingmaker, nicknamed Lucifer, and the ensemble cast, that included Prithviraj himself as Lucifer's loyal aide. #L The Finale: Mohanlal Drops a Hint about Lucifer 2, and Lalettan Fans Cannot Keep Calm!
Prithviraj and Mohanlal, along with writer Murali Gopy, had been hinting about the sequel for Lucifer. Even the ending of a film promised a new adventure for the protagonist, who is revealed to be Khureshi Ab'raam, the till-then hidden head of the Illuminati Society.
The conclusion of the film had both Prithviraj and Mohanlal's characters giving a veiled threat to a businessman (Shakti Kapoor in a cameo) on the phone while in Russia. And it looks like the sequel will begin from here, going by the video that Prithviraj's team has posted on Twitter. They have also confirmed the title of the film, which is L2: Empuraan. Empuraan in English means 'Overlord' a perfect fitting for Mohanlal's character in the movie.
More than a King..less than a God!
