Mohanlal watches Marakkar with his fans

Screen icon Mohanlal watched the premier show of his much-anticipated mega movie Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham with his fans. The special premier show was organised by Manorama Online in association with Jain International School of Creative Arts.

The actor joined his fans at the packed cinema halls in the Sarita, Savita and Sangeetha theatres. Mohanlal, who was overwhelmed by the excitement of his fans, enjoyed the movie with them.

Mohanlal said that he had reached the theatres as Marakkar was a special movie in his career. The actor was accompanied by the movie’s producer Antony Perumbavoor. Actors like Siddique, Unni Mukundan, Honey Rose and Santhosh Keezhatoor too had reached the Sarita theatre at Kochi to watch the premier show.

Marakkar has released in around 4100 screens all over the globe. The movie would have 16,000 screenings in a day. Meanwhile, the big budget movie would be released in five languages. The pre-booking for the shows had begun as soon as the release date of the movie was announced. Interestingly, the film had already raked in more than Rs 100 crore from reservation alone.

This is a rare phenomenon in Indian cinema. Meanwhile, Mohanlal wrote on his social media that the release day would be an historical day for the iconic Kunjali and Malayalam cinema. Marakkar had bagged the greatest number of release centres for a Malayalam movie.
