biggest support. The director states that his best buddy has always
been there for him, throughout all the ups and downs of his
Mohanlal has never allowed Priyadarshan to feel down, whenever
he went through a low phase in his career or personal life. He has
also guided Priyan with the right advises, during the tough
Priyadarshan witnessed a low phase in his career with the
failure of Kadathanadan Ambadi, which was released
immediately after some highly successful movies. Then, Mohanlal
suggested him to take a short break from movies.
The actor believes that continuous successes will create an
over-confidence, which will badly affect the quality of our work.
Thus, Priyan went for a short break and later bounced back with the
blockbuster movie Kilukkam.
Later, the director followed the same method when he faced
failure in his Bollywood career. Priyadarshan states that it was
Mohanlal advises and support, which made his strong enough to
handle the failures.
