Reportedly, Mohanlal has decided to release his movies only for festival seasons. Mohanlal made such a decision due to the poor performances of his recent releases such as Mr Fraud and Koothara. His latest release Peruchazhi is an average grosser in box office. The actor was not able to repeat the magic created by the blockbuster movie Drishyam, which went on to become the second ever highest grosser of Mollywood.
As per the decision, Mohanlal's upcoming movie Lailaa O Lailaa will get released on Christmas and Sathyan Anthikad directed untitled flick is slated to release for Vishu. But the official confirmation on the report is yet to happen.
According to the reports, Mohanlal has also decided to sell the television rights of his all upcoming releases to Amrita TV. It is rumoured that he took the decision upon the opinion differences between him and the head officials of the channel Asianet, who usually bags the television rights of Mohanlal movies. The actor hasn't commented on these reports yet.
Mohanlal has committed a handful of projects, which includes Anil directed Memorycard, Madhupal's untitled flick and Rajeevnath's next movie. If the reports on the decision took by the star, to release his movies only on festival seasons are true, it can affect the releases of his upcoming projects badly.
