Every time either Mammootty or Mohanlal plays a unique character on screen, the other tries to upstage him by essaying a similar personality in his next movie.

He will star as Kunjali Marakkkar, the king who ruled Kozhikode during the 16th century, in his next film. The movie will be directed by Jayaraj, who will be working with Mohanlal for the first time. Jayaraj has worked with all other top stars in Kerala including Mammootty, Suresh Gopi and Jayaram.
