The team of Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, which already has a star-studded cast led by Mohanlal, has been releasing behind-the-scenes videos from the film’s shoot two years ago featuring superstars from other industries. After unveiling a video of Ajith’s visit to the sets in 2019, Mohanlal today shared a video on Vijay Sethupathi who had attended the film’s shoot in Hyderabad.

In the video, we see glimpses of Vijay Sethupathi watching the film’s shoot, especially an action sequence set in a palace. Mohanlal’s Kunjali Marakkar IV is engaged in a fight with a foreign actor’s character in the movie. Sethupathi also had a chat with the veteran superstar and the film’s director Priyadarshan while he was on the sets, erected by National Award-winning art director Sabu Cyril.

Ajith and Sethupathi weren’t the only big stars who had paid a visit to the film’s set during its filming in Ramoji Rao Film City in Hyderabad in 2019. Amitabh Bachchan too had dropped by while he was shooting for a Bollywood movie during the same time. Amitabh and Mohanlal had earlier shared screen space in the Major Ravi directorial Kandahar.

Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, meanwhile, has a pan-Indian cast led by Mohanlal, Prabhu, Suniel Shetty, Arjun Sarja, Manju Warrier, Keerthy Suresh and Kalyani Priyadarshan. The movie also has Siddique, Nedumudi Venu, Ashok Selvan, Pranav Mohanlal and Mukesh in pivotal roles.

The big-budget movie, which is reportedly the most expensive Malayalam film ever made, is set to hit theatres on December 2. The movie is expected to have a wide release with shows beginning from midnight in some theatres in Kerala on its first day.
