Rahul Raj to compose background score for Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham
Priyadarshan’s magnum opus ‘Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham’ is currently in the post-production phase. The makers have roped in Rahul Raj to compose background score for this epic film. Rahul has been away from films for over a year as he was busy doing his Masters in scoring at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Valencia. ‘Marakkar’ os probably the first film after the completion of his post graduation. He has earlier worked in several hit films like ‘Chotta Mumbai’, ‘Ritu’, ‘Hey Jude’ etc.
Last day, Rahul took to his official social media handle to thank Priyadarshan for making him a part of ‘Marakkar’. The flick is based on the life of Kunjali Marakkar IV. While Mohanlal plays the titular role, the cast also includes several other big stars from across the country. Suniel Shetty, Arjun Sarja, Keerthy Suresh, Ashok Selvan, Pranav Mohanlal, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Prabhu, Mukesh, Fazil, Siddique, Manju Warrier, Baburaj, Nedumudi Venu, Hareesh Perady, Nandu, Innocent, Ganesh Kumar, Suresh Kumar and many others are part of the film.
‘Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham’ is said to be made on a budget of around Rs 100 crores. Mohanlal’s Aashirvad Cinemas, Confident Group and Moonshot Entertainment are jointly producing the movie. Since it is a VFX heavy film, it demands extensive post-production. A Los Angeles based company is handling the VFX works. Unconfirmed reports suggest that the film will hit screens on March 26, 2020.
