Malayalam star Prithiviraj Sukumaran on Thursday began filming his second directorial feature, Bro Daddy. Described as a “fun family drama”, the film features superstar Mohanlal, Prithiviraj and Kalyani Priyadarshan.
Bro Daddy reunites Mohanlal and Prithviraj after the latter’s 2019 directorial debut Lucifer, which featured the 61-year-old actor in the lead role. The actor-director took to Instagram and posted a picture from the film’s set with Kalyani to mark the first day of filming.
“‘Bro Daddy’, shoot day one,” the 38-year-old actor captioned the picture.
Produced by Antony Perumbavoor under Aashirvad Cinemas, Bro Daddy is written by Sreejith N and Bibin Maliekal.
“With all your blessings we have started #BroDaddy shoot today in Hyderabad,” read a tweet on the official Twitter handle of Aashirvad Cinemas.

Prithviraj was recently seen in the Malayalam crime thriller Cold Case, which was released on Amazon Prime Video.
