Mohanlal & Priyadarshan To Team Up Again For A Boxing Film

The great Mohanlal and  the prolific  director Priyadarshan have  done 29 Malayalam  films together so far.

One of them MarakkarArabikadalinte Simham is  yet to be released.

The  Robert de Niro  and Martin Scorcese  of  Malayalam  cinema are  already  working on their  next  film.

“It is  the  story of  a  boxer,his rise  to fame  and then his fall . Mohanlal and I have done all kinds of films together.  But we’ve never done  a sports film. I’ve always been fascinated by Scorcese’s Raging Bull. So  you could say this would be our Raging Bull,” reveals Priyadarshan.

For  the role Mohanlal would have to lose at  least 15 kilos.

“And then gain it all back, and add at least ten kilos  to show the aging out of shape  boxer. Would he  be  able to do it? Of course he  will!  Is there anything that Mohanlal can’t do?”  the fanboy in Priyan comes  tumbling out.

As for  MarakkarArabikadalinte SimhamPriyadarshan  reveals  release plans. “We were supposed  to release  on 12 August . But with Covid raging across  some states it seems  unlikely. But whenever  we release  it will be  in theatres  only. The Kerala Film Distributors  Association  have promised  to give us a 3-week  window whenever we release  MarakkarArabikadalinte Simham.”
