Upon releasing the first look of ‘Madurai Raja’, Megastar Mammootty has made one thing sure that nothing has changed since the release of ‘Pokkiri Raja’ 9 years ago. The movie, which marks the reunion of Mammootty and director Vyshakh after ‘Pokkiri Raja’, is carrying huge expectations and is backed by a huge budget as well. In fact, industry insiders and makers maintain that ‘Madurai Raja’ is the biggest movie in the career of Megastar, in terms of budget.
Interestingly enough, the movie would have Tamil star Jai appearing in an important role. Makers are planning to release ‘Madurai Raja’ simultaneously in Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu. Penned by Udayakrishan, ‘Madurai Raja’ is also the first project that unites Udayakrishna, Vyshakh and Peter Heine after ‘Puli Murugan’. The movie will have Anusree, Mahima Nambiar, Shamna Kasim as the heroines, while most of the actors who were there in ‘Pokkiri Raja’ would be here in this movie as well. That said, Prithviraj would only be appearing in ‘Madurai Raja’ in an extended cameo role.
