Khan said that he did not know much about Mohanlal, and has now learnt of Mohanlal's celebrity status in the Malayalam film industry. In his earlier tweet, KRK said that Mohanlal was unfit for the role of Bheem in Randamoozham. He went on to say that this casting decision would be a waste of producer BR Shetty's money.

For this tweet, he received backlash from Mohanlal's fans on the micro-blogging site.

Randamoozham is the film adaptation of veteran Malayalam writer MT Vasudevan Nair's book based on The Mahabharata. With a lavish budget of Rs 1000 crore, it is being touted as the biggest motion picture ever made in India. V.A. Shrikumar Menon will helm the project.

Mohanlal posted a video on Facebook where he spoke about being cast in this film. In it, he says, "Like many of us, I grew up to the tales of the Mahabaratha. I consider myself lucky to be named to play Bheema who is the pivotal character in Randamoozham. I am thankful to everyone who believes in me."
