A biopic on the legendary Naval chief of the erstwhile Zamorin of Calicut, Kunjali Marakkar, has been announced some years back. Mammootty has been decided to play Kunjali Marakkar and it was earlier heard that Amal Neerad will be the director.
But in a recent interview, Amal has made it clear that he is not directing the movie.
One of the prominent names rumoured to be directing Kunjali Marakkar is ace cinematographer Santosh Sivan. He has directed Ananthabhadram and Urumi in Malayalam. However, there has been no official announcements on this news as yet.
Writer T P Rajeevan, who wrote Paleri Manikyam is said to be busy penning the script.
