Veteran actor Siddique plays an important role in the upcoming film Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and his look in it has been revealed. The talented actor looks every bit a warrior from what we get to see and looks like he has a meaty role in the film.

The shooting of this magnum opus began early this month at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad and has been progressing well. Grand sets have been erected for the shooting and a major portion of the film will be shot here, report sources. The National Award winning art director Sabu Cyril has worked on the sets.

While Mohanlal will be playing the title role, the film will have his son Pranav making a cameo appearance. If reports are true, the youngster could be seen as the younger version of Marakkar. Further, Priyadarshan’s daughter Kalyani, who made her acting debut in a Tollywood film, will be seen doing a role in the film and it will mark her debut in the Malayalam film industry.

This historical also has Prabhu, Suneil Shetty, Manju Warrier, Arjun Sarja, Mukesh and Keerthy Suresh in pivotal roles.

It may be mentioned here that the title ‘Kunjali Marakkar’ was bestowed on naval chiefs during the 16th century and these naval chiefs fought valiantly against the Portuguese army. There were four Kunjali Marakkars during that era, of which the fourth is the most valiant and popular. The film is based on his life. It will have extensive sea warfare sequences which will be its highlight

The film will be produced jointly by Antony Perumbavoor, Santhosh T Kuruvilla and CJ Roy under their respective banners with a budget costing Rs 100 crore.

Though the shooting of Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham began in 2018 and will be wrapped up in April 2019, its release is scheduled to happen in 2020. The long time frame needed for its release post shooting is due to the large amount of graphics work it requires.
