Is Marakkar giving way to Drishyam 2?

Marakkar, the big budget period drama had pushed its release indefinitely due to the lockdown. The film starring Mohanlal is backed by Antony Perumbavoor under Aashirvad Cinemas banner and was set to hit worldwide screens in March. The multi-starrer by Priyadarshan had roped in many talented names from different film industries but is kept on hold as of now and are waiting for corona crisis to subside to go ahead with theater release. Meanwhile, the same banner is backing Jeethu Joseph's film Drishyam 2, starring Mohanlal which will start shoot in August. Going by industry reports, Mohanlal and the producer may go ahead and release Drishyam 2 ahead of Marakkar, to pull movie buffs to theaters.
