    But still, it is always a precious moment when the films of Mammootty & Mohanlal make it to the theatres. It becomes even more special when films of both these actors clash at the box office.

    Now, if reports are to be believed, we would get to see an epic box office clash, once again, when the films of Mammootty & Mohanlal will be seen locking the horns at the box office in the same season.
