Mohanlal backed out of Sibi Malayil film Swaminathan.
According to reports, Mohanlal's denial was due to the continuous
flop of Sibi films.
Last two Sibi releases Violin and Unnam did
not hit the charts and it must be the reason why Mohanlal decided
not to commit with Swaminathan. Flash and
Devadhoothan, two earlier Mohanlal films directed by Sibi
also could not win the box office.
Big budget film Casanova too did not do well for
Mohanlal. Considering all these facts, it is now being said that
Mohanlal is too careful in selecting forthcoming projects.
