Superstar Mohanlal is all set to don the director's hat after an illustrious acting career spanning nearly four decades. The Complete Actor will appear in titular role in his upcoming mega project titled, Barroz.

Set in a Portuguese background, this much awaited 3-D film will unravel the life of Barroz, the guardian of Portuguese travelller Vaso D' Gama's treasure. The Lucifer star revealed in an interview that making a movie for children is an uphill task. The length of the movie should not exceed one hour 45 minutes, otherwise it will fail to catch the viwer's attention. Cinematography should be world-class.
