Actor Sarathkumar is acting in a historical film- ‘Pazhassi Raja’- with Malayalam superstar Mammooty. This is the first time he is acting in a Malayalam movie While Mammooty is donning the role of main character of Pazhassi Raja who waged a war against the British in the 18th century, his role is also equally important as that of the King’s close confidant and lieutenant, Kunkan.
This film is being made in a record budget of Rs. 20 crores as the producer wants to recreate the 1797 period. The script is written by M T Vasudevan Nair and direction by Hariharan. It is also interesting to note that Mammooty acted the first time in a Tamil film with Sarathkumar.
