Kalyani Priyadarshan, the talented young actress recently opened up about her role in the much-awaited upcoming Mohanlal starrer, Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham. In a recent interview, Kalyani Priyadarshan confirmed that she is playing the love interest of Mammali, the character played by Pranav Mohanlal in the movie, which is directed by her father Priyadarshan.
The young actress revealed that she is playing a small role in the movie, which can be called a cameo. But despite having very little screentime, Kalyani Priyadarshan and Pranav Mohanlal are appearing together in a romantic dance number, which has won the Kerala State Film Award of 2019 for the Best Choreography. However, Kalyani stated that it was equally exciting and difficult to work with her father Priyadarshan in the film. Even though it was just a 5-days long schedule, for the actress it felt like 5 years.
As reported earlier, the release of Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham is now postponed to 2021, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. According to the sources close to the project, the team is planning to have a solo release for the movie with a record number of theaters. But, considering the current situation, it will take a few more months for the film industry to come back to its normal state. So, it has been confirmed that the Mohanlal starrer will not hit the theaters anytime soon.
Pranav Mohanlal, his young actor, and son of Mohanlal, plays the younger version of Kunjali Marakkar IV, who was widely known as Mammali. Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham features an extensive star cast including Manju Warrier, Keerthy Suresh, Suniel Shetty, Arjun Sarja, Prabhu Ganesan, Mukesh, Siddique, Nedumudi Venu, Innocent, Mamukoya, and so on in the other pivotal roles. The magnum opus is jointly produced by Aashirvad Cinemas, Confident Group, and Moonshot entertainments.
