Mammootty’s Kunjali Marakkar to start rolling from June!

Kunjali Marakkar is perhaps the most talked about Malayalam movie in recent years. Two production houses – August Cinema and Moonshot Entertainment – had announced their projects with the two superstars of Malayalam industry, Mammootty and Mohanlal, respectively. But it now looks like only Mammootty’s camp is taking the project forward.

Veteran cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Santhosh Sivan is directing Mammootty’s Kunjali Marakkar IV under the banner of August Cinema. Pre-production works for the movie is currently progressing and trustworthy reports suggest that it will go on floors from June, next year.

Kunjali Marakkar was the title given to the naval chief in the 16th century, to protect the coast against the invading Portuguese army. TP Rajeev and Shankar Ramakrishnan are jointly scripting the upcoming movie after doing years of research works. Reportedly, August Cinema is planning to invest around 50 crores for the movie. Apart from Mammootty, some other non Malayali will also be part of the cast. However, the names have not yet been revealed. The makers are also in talks with foreign technicians to associate with this ambitious project.

In a recent interview Santhosh Sivan said that the movie has great prominence to the technical aspects since nearly 70% of the portions has to be shot mid-sea. He assured that the movie would meet global standards in its technicalities like VFX and CG works.

Santhosh Sivan, actor Arya and Shaji Natesan are jointly funding this big budget film under their banner August Cinema.
