Mohanlal as Kunjali Marikkar in Priyadarshan’s next
Mohanlal and Priyadarshan had teamed up for a project in which the Malayalam superstar will play Kunjali Marikkar, title given to the naval chief of the Zamorin in the 16th Century, to protect the coast against the Portuguese. “The research for the film is ongoing and it would take at least 10 months for that to complete. What we could gather till now is information that is very much in the open and known to the public. So, we need to dig up more history. The movie will be a mix of fiction and facts as information about many of the incidents that happened during the era is unavailable,” Priyadarshan told The Times Of India.
Genius producer Wendy Riss Gatsiounis accuses Dustin Hoffman of sexually assault
Riss Gatsiounis, who was a struggling playwright in 1991, talked about her meeting with Dustin Hoffman to Variety. According to Variety, she said, “I go in, and this time it’s, like, Dustin Hoffman’s really different.” He says, ‘Before you start, let me ask you one question, Wendy — have you ever been intimate with a man over 40?’” Flustered, Riss Gatsiounis attempted to laugh off the comment. But Hoffman persisted.
“I’ll never forget — he moves back, he opens his arms, and he says, ‘It would be a whole new body to explore,’” she said. “I’m trying to go back to my pitch, and I’m trying to talk about my play. Then Dustin Hoffman gets up and he says he has to do some clothing shopping at a nearby hotel, and did I want to come along? He’s like, ‘Come on, come to this nearby hotel.’”
Hoffman left after Gatsiounis repeatedly declined to go with him.
