After a long wait, Mohanlal’s most awaited magnum opus titled Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham’s makers have finally announced the release date. The Priyadarshan directorial is set to release on March 26, 2021 in theatres. Sharing the news on Twitter, Aashirvad Cinema, who has produced the film shared a photo of Mohanlal from the film and wrote, “#MarakkarArabikadalinteSimham Releasing On 2021 March 26…!! #Mohanlal #Priyadarshan #AntonyPerumbavoor #AashirvadCinemas.”

It is expected that the megastar will play the role of Kunjali Marakkar IV in Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham. Kunjali Marakkar was a title given to the best performing naval chieftains during the rule of Zamorin of Calicut. Media reports suggest that the period drama was made on a mammoth budget of Rs 100 crore. If this report is true, it is the most expensive Malayalam film ever made. The war movie, which is set in the 16th century, was earlier scheduled to be released on March 26, 2020. However, it did not happen owing to the pandemic situation.
