But, according to the latest updates, it is not Mammootty but Mohanlal is playing the central character in the upcoming movie of Joshiy. If the reports are to be believed, Mohanlal will star in 2 consecutive projects of Joshiy, which includes the upcoming flick Lailaa O Lailaa.

In another interview, Ranjan revealed that Manju Warrier will essay the central character in Joshiy's next. It was speculated that both the revelations refer to the same movie, which will bring the much awaited Mammootty-Manju duo onscreen.
But, the latest report suggests that the veteran director has put Mammootty project on hold, to start another Mohanlal starrer. It the reports are to be true, it will be a disappointing news for the fans of the Mammootty and Joshiy, who were eagerly waiting to watch the re-union of the veteran actor-director duo, after a long break of 6 years.
