We haven't seen Mohanlal with Vinayan. Do you know why ?
 
Vinayan is a film maker who had introduced many fresh talents to Malayalam cinema. Many of today's busy actors were once newcomers in Vinayan movies.

Jayasurya, Indrajith, Anoop Menon, Divya Unni, Honey Rose, Manikkuttan, Meghna Raj and the list goes on. The film maker has directed superstars too. We had seen Mammootty, Suresh Gopi and Dileep in many old Vinayan movies. But, why not a movie with Mohanlal ?

Nobody has a definitive answer to this. But, gossip mills point to a two decades old fall out between the duo. Vinayan entered Malayalam film industry with a movie titled ‘Superstar’ in the late 90s.

Reportedly, the director wanted Mohanlal to play the lead and approached him. Mohanlal, who was climbing his way up the ladder back then, rejected the newbie’s offer. Later, Vinayan roped in a Mohanlal lookalike named Madanlal to play the hero. However, the movie bombed at the box office.

This awkard incident might have triggered Mohanlal’s apathy towards Vinayan, according to rumour mills. Interestingly, Vinayan never approached him with a project after ‘Superstar’, which widened the perceived rift between them.
