Madhu to portray Kunjali Marakkar First in Marakkar
Veteran actor Madhu has been roped in to play the role of Kutyali Marakkar aka Kunjali Marakkar First, ancestor of Kunjali Marakkar IV, played by Mohanlal, in the upcoming Mollywood magnum opus Marakkar – Arabikadalinte Simham. Recently, the script work of the film has been completed. It is jointly scripted by Priyadarshan and Ani, son of late director IV Sasi and directed by Priyadarshan.
Reportedly, Telugu actor Nagarjuna and Bollywood actors Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal are part of the cast. As there is no clear history written about Kunjali Marakkar, the movie is said to be a blend of fiction and known history. Antony Perumbavoor, Santhosh T. Kuruvilla, and C.J. Roy will be funding this grand budget film. Marakkar – Arabikadalinte Simham is expected to go on floors in November.
