Sabu Cyril has taken care of the art department and extravagant sets including two massive ships were erected at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, where some very important scenes were canned.
Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham is based on the true-life of Kunjali Marakkar IV. It will have extensive sea warfare sequences which will be its highlight.
