30/04/2018MFC

In a recent press conference held at Kochi, Director Priyadarshan confirmed that he has decided to go forward with his much awaited Kunjali Marakkar movie. The movie titled Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham will have Lalettan donning the title role of Kunjali Marakkar IV along with another Tamil superstar doing a pivotal role. Marakkar will be co-produced by Antony Perumbavoor, CJ Roy & Santosh Kuruvilla and is projected to be one of the most costliest movies ever made in Mollywood. Priyadharshan had earlier announced that he would direct Mohanlal in a film on Kunjali Marakkar and that it would be a big budget project. However, producer Shaji Nadeshan also came out with the announcement that Mammootty and director Santosh Sivan would be collaborating for a movie on Kunjali Marakkar. Following these events Priyadarshan gave Shaji Nadeshan 6 months time to start their project and if they failed to materialise, he would go ahead with his project. In Priyans words, “Kunjali Marakkar IV has the most interesting story. He was the one who revolted against the Zamorins and was hanged. Most of his story happens in the sea and it’s never easy to shoot such a film in the sea. It has to be shot on par with international standards and needs to be appealing for the national audience with star cast from other industries too. Our film has been planned in such a way.”
