The friendship between Priyadarshan and Mohanlal is no secret. They have done many films together in Malayalam and most of them have been super hits. Even though Priyadarshan has done many films with Mohanlal. Mammootty fans were wondering why the famous Malayalam director has done very little Malayalam films with Mammootty. Megham, Parayanum vayya Parayathirikkanum vayya are two such movies.
Priyadarshan has avoided many Mammooty films. Is this due to the relationship he has with Superstar Mohanlal? Priyadarshan gave a statement denying this to be true.
“When I was in Madras I spent a lot of time with Mammooty more than with Mohanlal, at that time Mammootty was doing Lead roles and Mohanlal was doing Negative roles. In my first film Mammootty was supposedly to do Actor Soman’s role. For some reason that did not happen according to my expectations. Even now I am one among the many who belovedly call Mammootty as Mamooka”
