The latest location still released as a great relief for the Mohanlal fans and cine-goers, who have been eagerly waiting for an update on Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham.
As reported earlier, Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham is now postponed to 2021, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. According to the sources close to the project, the makers are aiming for a solo release for the movie with a record number of theaters. While considering the current situation, it will take at least another year for the film industry to come back to its normal state. In that case, it is impossible for the Mohanlal starrer to hit the theaters anytime soon.
Mohanlal plays Kunjali Marakkar IV, the naval chieftain of Samoothiri Kingdom, while Pranav Mohanlal, his son, plays the younger version of the character. 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, Kalyani Priyadarshan, and so on in the other pivotal roles. The Mohanlal starrer is jointly produced by Aashirvad Cinemas, Confident Group, and Moonshot entertainments.
