The first look of actor Manju Warrier’s character in upcoming movie Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham is out. She is playing Subaida in the big-budget period drama, which stars superstar Mohanlal in the lead role.
Previously, Manju was seen alongside Mohanlal in Lucifer. The gangster drama set in the backdrop of a family crisis became the highest-grossing movie in the history of Malayalam cinema when it released last year. Meanwhile, Manju has also signed a mystery thriller called The Priest, which will mark her maiden acting collaboration with superstar Mammootty.
Besides Mohanlal and Manju, Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham boasts of an all-star supporting cast including Arjun Sarja, Suniel Shetty, Prabhudheva, Prabhu, Keerthy Suresh, Kalyani Priyadarshan and Pranav Mohanlal.
