Recently released Malayalam movie Njan Prakashan has received rave reviews for its wry humour and interesting storyline. Noted actor Fahadh Faasil played the role of the hero who wants to lead an easy-going life in this hilarious comedy.
But, its director Sathyan Anthikad has revealed that initially Mohanlal was the first choice for the comic entertainer. The project even got Lal's approval. Had the project materialised it would've marked the reuniting of Lal-Sreenivasan-Sathyan team after many decades, said the popular director known for his family-oriented humour movies.
But, Sathyan later zeroed in on Fahadh as he felt that a young actor is ideal to play the hero. Contrary to rumours, there are no issues between Lal and Sreenivasan, added Sathyan. Both actors respect each other and they have the right for disagreements also, shared Sathyan.
