Sreenivasan, the popular actor-writer says that Mohanlal is reluctant to do negative roles. He was talking in the Nere Chovve programme, aired in Manorama News channel. He revealed the experiences with Mohanlal on the show.
According to Sreenivasan, the negative role in the movie Mukunthetta Sumithra Vilikkunnu was initially offered to Mohanlal. But the actor was not interested in antagonist roles. Later, Sreenivasan himself played the role after making slight changes.
The same thing happened with the blockbuster movie Udayananu Tharam. Sreenivasan also expressed his disappointment over the attitude of talented actors towards good cinema. He states that the star value badly affects the movie choices.
But at the same time, Sreenivasan denied the allegations which suggested that his movie Padmasree Bharath Dr Saroj Kumar was targeted against Mohanlal. He confirmed that he has no personal issues with Mohanlal and will not insult anyone through films.
The actor-writer confessed that his straight forward nature has created misunderstandings in his friends circle. But movies like Udayananu Tharam was made out of his desire to reveal at least a small percent of the real Cinema world.
It has been rumoured that Mohanlal and Sreenivasan are not good terms, since the release of the movie Oru Naal Varum. Rumour mills suggest that Mohanlal's interference in the script didn't go well with Sreenivasan.
