Lal seems to be fed up of his Harihar Nagar sequels. He has stopped all work on another sequel, and is now making a film which will have youngsters in the lead. The film has been titled Tournament and it will be a road movie.

Lal feels a new movie with youngsters with something different will work with today’s audiences. Tournament will start in September end and it will be an out and out youth movie which will be made as an entertainer and shot in Mysore, Bangalore and Gundalpet.
