Speaking at the press meet about his comeback movie Ammathottil, Sreekumaran said, "After the 90s, theatre owners started insisting on superstar films. They only wanted films which had either Mammootty or Mohanlal and this situation made it difficult for us. Both the actors, who reached this stage with our support, stopped giving dates and created a group of directors and producers for themselves. At this point, I relocated to television and focused on serials. So far I have made 13 serials and discussion for another is on."
