Manju Warrier's comeback movie Man Friday has once again made it to the headlines, but this time for a controversy. The movie, which cast Mohanlal and Manju in the lead roles has hit the controversy as to who will be the producer of the film.
Ranjith, who is the director of this film, had already given a
promise to the Seven Arts, one of the leading producers in the
Malayalam industry, that he will make them produce his next film
after Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty (KKOM).
KKOM was directed and produced by Ranjith itself. Later he
announced his project Man Friday with Mohanlal and Manju
As per the promise Seven Arts believed that Man Friday
would be produced by them. But to their surprise Anthony
Perumbavoor announced that he is producing Man Friday
under the banner of Aashirvad Films.
Seven Arts had produced the earlier Ranjith flick
Baavuttiyude Naamathil, which ended the producer in a huge
financial crisis. Due to the same Ranjith had promised Seven Arts
Vijayakumar that he will do his next project for him. But now
Vijayakumar has landed in a dilemma.
Director Ranjith has not made any statement with respect to this issue which is the biggest confusion. Aashirvaad Films has clearly stated that they will not withdraw from producing Man Friday at any cost. Now all we have to do is to wait and see who will produce Man Friday - Seven Arts or Aashirvaad Films?
