While the Malayalam film industry is in crisis with the split up of MACTA, Mohanlal has decided to stay away from all the hype and hoopla and continue with his work. He is busy with the work of Swapnamalika, a film for which he has written the story. The shooting of the film is taking place in Varanasi, a Hindu holy place.
Mohanlal, accompanied by other actors like Innocent and Geetha Salam, is camping in Varanasi and he will be there till the schedule is completed.
Interestingly, director Vinayan, who is at the centre of the MACTA controversy, had done a film named Superstar with a lookalike of Mohanlal when the actor refused him dates for a film.
