Mohanlal's 'Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham' to release on August 12


Malayalam superstar Mohanlal on Friday said his National Award-winning movie 'Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham' will release countrywide on August 12.

The Malayalam-language period drama, directed by Priyadarshan, was previously set to debut in the country's theatres last year but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Taking to Twitter, Mohanlal said the film, titled "Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham" in Malayalam, will be presented as an 'Onam release'.

"With love and a mind full of hope, we plan to bring 'Marakkar-Arabikadalinte Simham' on August 12 as an Onam release. We move ahead with the belief that we have your prayers and blessings," the 61-year-old actor wrote.

'Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham' will also feature Mohanlal's son Pranav Mohanlal as well as actors Arjun Sarja, Suniel Shetty, Prabhu, Manju Warrier and Keerthy Suresh.

The film, set in the 16th century, chronicles the story of Kunjali Marakkar IV, the naval commander of the Samoothiri.

It recently bagged three awards at the 67th National Awards -- Best Feature Film, Best Special Effects, and Best Costume.
