Moahanlal-starrer Spadikam was one of the biggest box office successes in Malayalam. Mohanlal played the role of a rebellious son in this cult action movie directed by veteran filmmaker Bhadran. Lalettan's character Aadu Thomas is considered as the actor's evergreen character.

However, young filmmaker Biju J Kattackal's plan to come with a sequel to Spadikam has triggered a major controversy in Mollywood. Titled Spadikam-2 Irumban, the movie will be released on March 30, 2020 said Biju J Kattackal on his Facebook page recently. Meanwhile, Bhadran has annouced that he is re-releasing Spadikam on March 30, 2020 to mark its 25th anniversary. He has also warned Biju of legal action if he decides to go ahead with the sequel. But Biju said that he is not willing cancel his plans and reiterated that he will release the movie against all odds. 

Bhadran is currently busy with his upcoming venture titled Joothan. Noted actor Soubin plays the lead role in this much awaited film.
