Mohanlal release stayed

The Thrissur District Court on Wednesday stayed the release of the film Mohanlal, starring Manju Warrier and directed by Sajid Yahiya.

The court stayed the release of the film following a complaint filed by scriptwriter Kalavur Ravikumar stating that the film was an adaptation of his short story Mohanlaline Enikkippol Bhayankara Pediyanu.

Mr. Ravikumar has demanded 25% of the profit of the film. The movie in which Manju Warrier is acting as a hardcore Mohanlal fan was slated for Vishu release. Earlier, in a Facebook post, the director of the film had denied the allegation and said there was no resemblance between his film and Mr. Ravikumar’s story.
