As his latest movie has started debates over its intense criticism of Mollywood star systems, its lead actor and writer Sreenivasan maintains that he has never intended to hurt any of the superstars, including Lal. Sreeni adds that he just reflected the ideas and happenings around the filmdom but the majority who had seen the sequences of 'IT raids' and 'Colonel title hunt' judged it as one that is framed against Mohanlal. Sreeni was talking to a popular media, describing the events that led him to the scripting of the highly critical 'Padmashree Bharath Dr.Saroj Kumar' which is currently in theatres.
In an interesting turn of events, Sreenivasan has also revealed that he has written about IT raids in the house of superstars, even before the same thing happened in actuality. Shocked with the developments following the IT raid, Sreeni immediately tried to contact the superstars of Mollywood to clear off the things. He was able to contact Mammootty, who after hearing about the plot asked whether there will be any criticism citing the name. As Sreenivasan assured that he will not be using any real names, Mammootty is said to have appreciated the effort and asked him to continue with the scripting. Sreenivasan also revealed that he has also tried to speak to Mohanlal, but couldn't get in touch as Lal has changed his mobile numbers. Sreeni believes that if Lal had seen the movie, he would have taken all in the lighter vein and will not feel any discomfort about its content.
