Superstar Mohanlal and filmmaker Priyadarshan have been one of the most successful duos of the industry. The two have done as many as 29 Malayalam films together so far. One of them, Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, is awaited to be released.
Now according to the reports the duo is already ready with there next project.
“It is the story of a boxer,his rise to fame and then his fall . Mohanlal and I have done all kinds of films together. But we’ve never done a sports film. I’ve always been fascinated by Scorcese’s Raging Bull. So you could say this would be our Raging Bull,” SpotboyE quoted Priyadarshan as saying.
Mohanlal has reportedly started prepping up for the film. The actor would have to lose at least 15 kilos for the film.
“And then gain it all back, and add at least ten kilos to show the aging out of shape boxer. Would he be able to do it? Of course he will! Is there anything that Mohanlal can’t do?” added the filmmaker.
Talking about Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, Priyadarshan said, “We were supposed to release on 12 August . But with Covid raging across some states it seems unlikely. But whenever we release it will be in theatres only. The Kerala Film Distributors Association have promised to give us a 3-week window whenever we release Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham.”
