cinema

Veteran director Sreekumaran Thampi in an interview said that the young stars of Malayalam cinema are following in the footsteps of Mohanlal and Mammootty. He said that the new stars want to be above the directors and therefore the current superstars Nivin Pauly and Prithviraj will not give him their dates.

You can't hold kneel down in front of the stars to make a movie. The new stars are following in the footsteps of Mammootty and Mohanlal. All of them want to be above the directors in cinema. Camera angles are often decided by the stars. Sreekumaran Thampi said that this is why current superstars Nivin Pauly and Prithviraj are not giving him their dates.

He said that if he makes another film, it will be released on an online platform and that will be his last film. ‘When I make a new film I am sure that none of the current stars will give a date. The film will be shot with a newcomer. Star value is not only for theater movies but also for online platforms. If you want to sell the film on OTT, you don't need a star. 'See You Soon' was in demand because of Fahadh.

The next movie will be different from what I've done so far. Can't say when. I can not even say how many years or how many months I will live. But I'm planning a movie. It will happen '- he said in an interview to Grihalakshmi.
