The two will come together in Pokkiri Raja director’s film
Young director Vysakh, who shocked everyone with his casting coup in the 2000 superhit Pokkiri Raja – in which he pitted Prithviraj against Mammootty – has done it again. This time, he has cast Mammootty’s son Dulqar Salman as the main character against Mohanlal. The veteran Malayalam actors have done several movies together but have always been engaged in attempts to outdo each other’s success at the box office. In fact, both are even having big films releasing this Christmas weekend.Thanks to their rivalry going on for more than three decades, trade pundits feel that Vysakh’s would stoke the curiosity of fans. This would work in his movie’s favour in its initial days at the box-office. However, there is still time to gauge the response as the as-yet-untitled movie will hit the floors only by the end of 2012. Vysakh is currently working on Mallusingh. He had recently been at the receiving end of an angry MDMK mob while on a location scout in Tamil Nadu, thanks to the Mullapperiyar row.
