Even though his latest release in Odiyan has opened to pathetic reviews and a descending box office total, director Shrikumar Menon still stays motivated for his next – an onscreen adaptation of Mahabharata with Mohanlal playing the character of Bheema. For this film titled Randamoozham, the team had acquired the rights of writer MT Vasudevan Nair’s 1000-page novel of the same name but failed to take the film on floors even after four years, which in turn had thrown off the writer.
Earlier, the Kozhikode Munsif Court had banned both the director and the producer from using Vasudevan Nair’s script as the agreement had gone past the final date. Now, the writer’s daughter Ashwathy Nair has pointed out that making comments on a matter that is subjudice could be a contempt of court. The case is currently filed in the court, with their attempts to get back the script being their only priority.
