Check out Mohanlal's tweet here:

In an interview with ETimes, Priyadarshan had earlier shared, "I cannot think about someone other than Mohanlal when I am making a film on a bigger canvas! It is more of a friendship that we share, rather than being an actor and director. He is the one who encouraged me to make the film. And Malayalam cinema being a comparatively small industry, it was not a cakewalk, to make a movie of this grandeur. It was a path less attempted. Thanks to the digital boom and all those advancements in technology! Yet, we have our own limitations. But Mohanlal took a huge risk by attempting this film. And exactly 25 years ago we tried 'Kaalapani' and now this. I would like to see all of these as attempts."

Mohanlal and director Priyadarshan ventured into movies together and have been entertaining the cinephiles through their professional collaborations as well. Mohanlal essayed the lead role of Kunjali Marakkar IV in the historic film. The duo recently collaborated for Marakkar: Arabikkadalinte Simham. The film bagged three National Awards including the award for Best Feature Film.
