Turbo Arabic teaser released

Mammootty’s Turbo has become a successful venture by registering a phenomenal box-office collection.

According to its makers, the film raked in over ₹70 crore worldwide and has entered the fourth week of its theatrical run.

Meanwhile, the makers are all set to release the film in Arabic language. However, they are yet to finalise the release date.

At the success event of Turbo held at Sharjah Central Mall recently, Mammootty launched the Arabic teaser of the film. He also thanked the dubbing artists behind the Arabic version.

The Malayalam superstar felt that the Arabic version of the film would serve as a cultural meet between the Malayalees and Emiratis.

The Arabic teaser of Turbo is already making waves on YouTube by grabbing over 225K views within 24 hours.

Turbo marked Mammootty’s return to masala entertainers after a break of two years. Bheeshma Parvam (2022) was the last film, where he appeared as a mass hero (as a Kochi-based don).

Turbo has an ensemble cast, including Kannada actor Raj B Shetty and Telugu actor Sunil, who played pivotal roles.

Anjana Jayaprakash is the female lead.

Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi gave a voice-over in the climax portion, which hinted that he would play a key role in the sequel to Turbo. However, the makers haven’t confirmed anything about the sequel yet.
