Fans are now waiting to see Mohanlal in his upcoming movie Aarattu and Marakkar: The Lion of the Arabian Sea. In Marakkar, he plays Kunjali Marakkar IV, who earned his reputation with his fierce attack on Portuguese ships, the favours and help he extended to those who fought against the Portuguese and his efforts to strengthen the fort at Kottakkal. Marakkar’s total budget is reported to be Rs 100 crore which makes it the most expensive Malayalam film ever made.
The war movie which is set in the 16th century also stars Suniel Shetty and is slated to release on May 13, 2021.
