Recently, the teaser for his upcoming movie Kaappaan released that already racked up 7.5 million hits within 4 days. The movie also features Suriya Sivakumar, Arya, K V Anand, Harris Jayaraj, Subaskaran and others.
Meanwhile, another Mollywood star Dileep, who was last seen in Kodathi Samaksham Balan Vakeel, is currently shooting for an upcoming Malayalam 3D fantasy comedy Professor Dinkan. According to reports, the two South Indian stars are allegedly feuding.
In a recent tell-all uploaded on YouTube, veteran film journalist Ratnakumar Pallisseri alleged that Malayalam actor Dileep considers Mohanlal his enemy. The journalist with over three decades in the business, Pallisseri, revealed that Mohanlal and Dileep developed enmity during the pre-production works of the movie Ennum Eppozhum.

During that time Dileep had asked Mohanlal to remove Manju Warrier (Dileep's first wife) from the star cast of Ennum Eppozhum. However, Mohanlal declined Dileep's request also gave him a harsh reply to Dileep which was unexpected.
Pallisseri said in the video. "When Dileep asked Mohanlal to expel Manju Warrier from Ennum Eppozhum, the actor gave a very harsh reply. This made Dileep very angry on Mohanlal. Dileep has a book in which he writes the name of his enemies. On that night, Dileep opened a new page and wrote the name of Mollywood's superstar, Mohanlal." Not just that, Pallisseri also exposed that Dileep had also threatened director Roshan Andrews for making hit film How Old Are You with Manju Warrier.
However, this is not the first time that Pallisseri has spoken about Dileep and his personal life. A few weeks back, Pallisseri posted a video on YouTube alleging that Dileep had threatened Kavya Madhavan's former husband Nishal Chandra using her intimate photos. Pallisseri's videos received mixed reactions from the viewers and netizens. Some said all this Pallisseri said are a part of his publicity stunt. There are a few people, who said that this is the true face if the film industry.
According to reports, Dileep has taken legal action against Pallisseri for sharing this information about the actor.
