Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will be making his directorial debut with upcoming 3D film 'Barroz-Guardian of D'Gama's Treasure'. Calling it the beginning of a new journey, the actor announced in his blog that he will go behind the camera for the first time in his career. He went on to reveal that the film will be shot in 3D and can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Lal revealed the idea was born when he and filmmaker TK Rajeev Kumar decided to make a 3D show and met Jijo Punnoose, director of India's first fantasy 3D film 'My Dear Kuttichathan'.

Jijo narrated the story of 'Barroz', who according to Mohanlal, was a man who took care of Vasco Da Gama's treasure. The film will have more than one part and will be predominantly shot in Goa. The cast will include many international actors and the casting process will begin in the coming few months. On the work front, Mohanlal set screens on fire as Stephen Nedumpally in Prithviraj's 'Lucifer' last month, and currently awaits the release of Suriya-starrer 'Kaappaan' in which he will play the role of Prime Minister of India.
