Renowned South Indian film director Priyadarshan is not currently sitting back at home but is working on a fresh script with Akshay Kumar. This is what the director has confirmed on social media.
The director himself conformed this while speaking with a news portal. He not only opened up on the current lockdown in the country but also opened up regarding his upcoming Malayalam language film titled Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham.
The film stars Mohanlal in the lead role. In addition to this, the director also spoke a few words on his upcoming project with Akshay Kumar as well.
This is what he spoke about what he feels on the current lockdown in the country, “Sometimes, it’s good to slow down and the lockdown has given many of us a chance to relax and ruminate. I’ve done a bit of reading, besides watching films at my Chennai home. I’ve also started writing a new script, for Akshay Kumar.”
Regarding his upcoming Malayalam language film Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, it’s release has been postponed for an indefinite time amid the current Covid-19 lockdown.
Priyadarshan further stated, “With such huge stakes involved, we’re concerned about our product which we painstakingly built, but we are in no hurry to release the film. We’ll take a call when the world returns to normalcy, when people are in a position to enjoy things the way they used to earlier. We’re looking forward to a release in December or even early next year,” he said.
Lastly, the director chose to speak a few words on working with Rajinikanth. He said he would love to work with him if given a chance. “Who does not want to? Like almost all directors in the south and elsewhere, I too am in awe of the Superstar, but I could never have done justice to his histrionics had I gone ahead and done what we discussed years ago. In fact, two-three offers came my way with a project with Thalaivar, but I didn’t have the courage to tap his energy on screen. I still clap, whoop and whistle the moment I see him on screen. He is just, just beyond everybody,” he added.
