Mohanlal's 'Marakkar' to release on OTT platform after theatrical release

Tuesday, November 30, 2021 • Tamil Comments

Mohanlal’s most anticipated National-award-winning movie ‘Marakkar-Arabikadalinte Simham’ directed by Priyadarshan is gearing up for a grand theatrical release on December 2. Ahead of its release, the Superstar himself has confirmed that the magnum opus will be streamed on OTT platforms as well after the theatrical release. In an interview with a popular TV channel, Mohanlal clarified the same. “There were reports claiming that the movie will have a direct OTT release when we didn’t plan about the release. As such news was false, we opted to keep mum. ‘Marakkar’ makers have signed a contract with OTT platforms after confirming the theatrical release. So, ‘Marakkar’ will definitely have OTT release too,” said Mohanlal.

It may be remembered that the film's release was the hot topic of discussion on social media after the discussions between the theatre owners, distributors, and the movie producer Antony Perumbavoor failed multiple times. After a fallout with theatre owners, Antony Perumbavoor had even resigned from FEUOK (Film Exhibitors United Organisation of Kerala).
