Mohanlal and Priyadarshan is a one of those rare creative partnerships which have worked magic at the box office. The duo’s earlier release Oppam was a huge hit. The talented duo are now planning a period film set in the 16th century.

The film will be based on the story of Kunjali Marikkar who guarded the Kerela coast against the Portuguese. The team is now researching the facts as most of the information from that era is not available now.

The film will be equal parts fact and fiction and work on it will start next year. Priyadarshan is currently filming the Tamil remake of Maheshente Pratikaram title​d​ Nimir with Udhayanidhi Stalin while Mohanla​l​ is preparing for the supernatural drama Odiyan.
