Veteran filmmaker Priyadarshan has confirmed he is currently working on a fresh script for a project with actor Akshay Kumar in mind. In a recent interview, he said he has been coping very well with the lockdown. “Sometimes, it's good to slow down and the lockdown has given many of us a chance to relax and ruminate. I've done a bit of reading, besides watching films at my Chennai home. I've also started writing a new script, for Akshay Kumar.”
Meanwhile, the release of his upcoming 'Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham' has been postponed indefinitely.
Priyadarshan added, “With such huge stakes involved, we’re concerned about our product which we painstakingly built, but we are in no hurry to release the film. We’ll take a call when the world returns to normalcy, when people are in a position to enjoy things the way they used to earlier. We’re looking forward to a release in December or even early next year.”
