But the actor-director deleted the post immediately, as it stirred up a controversy.. Prathap hadn't mentioned Jayaram's name anywhere in the post but had clearly hinted that the person is a mimicry artist-turned-actor, who is a Padmashree holder.

He started the post, saying that this mimicry artist-turned-actor was introduced by his brother Hari Pothen. But he doesn't even care to attend the funeral or send a condolence message when his brother passed away.

Prathap says that Jayaram, who later earned fame and money, thinks that he is the Marlon Brando of Malayalam cinema. He also alleges that the actor earned Padmashree only because of his influence; not for his talent.

He points out that Jayaram hasn't been able to do anything more than mimicry in his films; but still thinks that he is a superstar. Prathap Pothen also stated that Mammootty and Mohanlal are the only superstars of M'town.
