Earlier, it was reported that Mammootty and Manju Warrier will pair up for Joshiy's directorial venture. Later, Mammootty himself denied the reports. But Manju has always expressed her desire to work with the megastar.
Mammootty's revelation was a shock for the industry and media, who were eagerly waiting for the collaboration of the super-talented actors. It was speculated that Mammootty decided not to work with Manju, due to his friendship with Dileep.
Dileep has always stated that he considers Mammootty as a brotherly figure. Reportedly, Mammootty has even tried to solve the issues between Dileep and Manju. But the couple divorced and Manju made a comeback into the industry.
Later, the actress was considered for the female lead in Mammootty starrer Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus. But later, she was replaced with Honey Rose. It was rumoured that the team decided to replace Manju, due to Mammootty's reluctance to work with her.
It is highly disappointing that the Malayali audience will not be able to watch the most talented actors of the industry together on-screen. We hope that Mammootty will change his decision and act with Manju in a promising project soon.
