Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will return to the screens today with thriller Neerali. The film also stars Nadia, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Nassar, Dileesh Pothan and Parvatii Nair.
Mohanlal had said at a recent press conference that there was no dissenting voice from any actor when the decision
to take Dileep back into AMMA’s fold was taken at its general body meeting held in Kochi last month.
Pranav Mohanlal starrer Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu will be helmed by Arun Gopy, who last year made a successful directorial debut with Ramaleela.
Mohanlal said since Dileep has stated that he would not return to AMMA until he is exonerated of the charges, technically and legally he (Dileep) is not in the organisation. Once Dileep is cleared off all charges, he can return to AMMA, said Mohanlal.
AMMA president Mohanlal said on Monday that no member of the film body objected to actor Dileep’s reinstatement when the subject was discussed at the general body meeting last month.
Lucifer marks the first directorial venture of Mollywood star Prithviraj Sukumaran. Making it even bigger, the film will have Mohanlal as the lead.
After shooting for Odiyan for nearly four months, Mohanlal finished his portions in April and moved onto to his other commitments. The film with a huge star cast is currently at the post production stage.
The first season of Bigg Boss Malayalam hosted by Superstar Mohanlal has a slew of popular celebrities. And some of these contestants get a hefty pay cheque depending on the popularity they already enjoy among fans.

Drama teaser: The teaser shows a sharply dressed Mohanlal running out of his house and diving into his open-roof car. Drama is the second collaboration of Ranjith and Mohanlal.
The row over Dileep’s re-induction into AMMA refused to die down even after he said he would not return till being cleared in the case of abducting and sexually assaulting an actress, with activists on Friday taking out a protest march against Mohanlal.
The Youth Congress and KSU workers said this decision by AMMA, a cultural organisation, was a ‘humiliation’ for Kerala society. They said they are with the actress, who was sexually assaulted in a moving car in February last year.
AMMA row: The Network of Women in Media, India (NWMI), a forum for women media professionals from across the country, has condemned the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA), which is now under the leadership of superstar Mohanlal, for its controversial decision on Dileep.
AMMA is now open to take him back, it remains to be seen if Dileep will appreciate the decision and return to the association, which is now headed by Mohanlal.
