I am not Mohanlal, said Jayaram to Sathyan Anthikkad!
The Complete Actor Mohanlal is the one who had acted in most number of movies directed by Sathyan Anthikkad as a hero and the one who comes after Mohanlal in this regard is popular actor Jayaram. After Mohanlal, it was Jayaram who had done more number of hero roles in Sathyan Anthikkad movies. It is a well-known fact that, when it comes to playing the common man kind of characters, there is nobody better than Mohanlal and Jayaram in Malayalam Cinema. Sathyan Anthikkad movies were always based on common people and that is why he cast Mohanlal and Jayaram more in his films. According to Sathyan Anthikkad, Mohanlal is the best ever who had acted in his movies and his friendship and craze for Mohanlal are just amazing as well. An incident happened on the sets of his Jayaram movie named Mazhavil Kavadi which released years back and it was indeed an event which shows his obsession with Mohanlal.
While filming Mazhavil Kavadi, Sathyan Anthikkadu was asking for many retakes as he was not satisfied with Jayaram’s performance in many scenes. His previous movies are with Mohanlal who is known for his stunning perfection when it comes to portraying any characters. Jayaram realized what was really happening with Sathyan Anthikkad and he told Sathyan Anthikkad personally in a funny manner that he is not Mohanlal and Sathyan Anthikkad have to realize that first. Jayaram had played that character very well and the film was a super hit as well. It was released in the year 1989.
