Megastar Mammootty has announced Kunjali Marakkar IV, to be directed by ace cinematographer and filmmaker Santosh Sivan. The project is being produced by August Cinema and scripted by T P Rajeevan and Sankar Ramakrishnan.
But this has raised questions about an earlier project, on the life of ‘Kunjali Marakkar’, which was planned by Priyadarshan with Mohanlal in the lead.
Already Mammootty fans have started trolling the long in the waiting Mohanlal project.
Kunjali Marakkar was the title given to the Muslim naval chief of the king of Calicut, named Zamorin, during the 16th century.
Mammootty has played several historical figures in the past, including ‘Chanthu’ (Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha), Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar and Pazhassi Raja- all super hits.
