It must be remembered that Prithviraj had first announced this project back in 2015. Then he had posted a note on Facebook page which reads,
“The history of any land is crafted by men of valour and sacrifice — some of them we know and worship but most of them we never know and are forgotten. The courage and steadfastness of such unsung heroes are unparalleled in the history of Venad. The ballads of Venad, shrouded in the haze of time, is the story of heroic men like Chief Lieutenant Iravikutty Pillai and his trusted disciple Kunchirakkottu Kaali and thousands of other patriots who laid down their lives in defence of their beloved land. The lives, sacrifices and heroism of these immortal warriors of Venad will soon be relived through an epic. Announcing.. The Magnum opus.. Kunchirakkottu Kaali.”
Apparently, Prithviraj plays the role of Kunchirakkottu Kaali aka Kaaliyan in the movie. Bollywood’s composer trio Shankar Ehsaan Loy is making their debut in Malayalam with this movie. Sujith Vaassudev will be wielding the camera and Shajith Koyeri will be handling the sound design.
More details regarding the cast or when the movie will go on floors has not yet been announced. Stay tuned to this space for this more updates.
