Mathew will share screen in the upcoming movie Lailaa o
Lailaa, directed by Joshiy. The actors are acting together for the
first time in their careers. Joy Mathew has always expressed his
desire to work with Mohanlal and stated that he have a great
admiration for Mohanlal's extraordinary acting skills.
Joy Mathew, who is well-known for his outspoken nature, had
declared his support for Mohanlal through his Facebook page, when
director Dr Biju criticized Mohanlal for being partial towards the
higher castes and insulting the tribal communities with his
dialogue in the latest release, Peruchazhi.
This incident led into a big social media fight between Joy
Mathew and Dr Biju; but the actor stayed strong in his opinion by
stating that, director and scenarist are the ones who decide what
an actor should talk onscreen; so Mohanlal should not be blamed for
that dialogue. Joy Mathew also made another controversy by asking
Dr Biju to take medical treatments as soon as possible.
Lailaa O Lailaa is penned by Kahaani
fame Suresh Nair. Amala Paul plays the female lead in the
movie. Tamil actor Sathyaraj and Ramya Nambeesan will essay the
other pivotal roles. Amit Mishra composes the music for the movie,
which is produced by Finecut Entertainments. Lailaa O
Lailaa is slated to release for Christmas.
