Mammootty’s Kunjali Marakkar is not shelved, says director
Last day, popular filmmaker Priyadarshan had announced that he will be directing a movie on Kunjali Marakkar titled as Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham aka Marakkar: The King of Arabian Sea, starring Mohanlal in the lead role. Actually, popular Malayalam producer Shaji Nadesan had already announced that he will be producing a movie on Kunjali Marakkar with Mammootty in the lead, which will be directed by Santosh Sivan.
Priyadarshan thought to go ahead with the project as there were no further signs of the Mammootty project ever after a long wait of eight months. Now, Santosh made a statement that his project is not dropped but it will take time to start shooting as he was currently busy with his commitments as a cinematographer. Shaji Nadesan too has confirmed this by sharing a poster of the film.
