Veteran filmmaker Siddique who directed late actor Rizabawa in the blockbuster comedy In Harihar Nagar recalls that the crew had initially cast Tamil actor Raghuvaran to play the iconic villain role of John Honayi.
Mammootty plays Boss, a ruthless moneylender, who is into film financing.
Siddique recalls heart-warming incidents when he experienced the great love and care that Mohanlal has for his colleagues and friends.
Earlier, the producers' association had decided not to sign Shane Nigam for new movies for not cooperating with them.
Arbaaz hosted a party on the occasion of his birthday and Mohanlal too was part of the celebration.
Siddique gets eloquent about his humble beginnings, turning point in his career and aspirations in a free wheeling chat with Onmanorama.
Onmanorama caught up with the actor to ask Just One Question: What made you play Parvathy's father, in 'Uyare' at a time when the industry was divided over misogyny?
Dileep's well-balanced presentation of Krishnan fetched him applauds and also for choosing a role that was far away from his usual comic role.
While praises were being showered by many, Siddhique, as he addressed the media, got emotional and ran out of words.
When a fan asked Dileep for a selfie, he reminded them that after the event he would meet each of them and would take photo.
