It is Priyadarshan's collaborations with Mohanlal that have been among the most successful or talked-about in the Malayalam film industry. Their partnership has yielded movies that are considered among the landmarks of Malayalam cinema.

But Priyadarshan has had a few gems with the other major Malayalam superstar, Mammootty, as well.

The duo has worked together on four films, with Megham in 1999 the last. They're also known to be close friends since the 1980s.

However, news reports now state that Mammootty and Priyadarshan will team up for a film again in 2017. The film may also star the actor Dileep. No further details about the film — its title, genre, premise, or what roles Mammootty and Dileep will play — have been revealed thus far.

Mammootty is currently enjoying the success of his latest release, The Great Father, which is still playing in theatres. He also has the upcoming Streetlights to look forward to, on which work begins in mid-May 2017.

Priyadarshan had announced that he would be taking on two projects this year — a film each with both the superstars of Malayalam cinema. However, he said he wasn't sure which of the two films — the one with Mohanlal or Mammootty — would take off first.

Priyadarshan's most recent film with Mohanlal — Oppam, in 2016 — was a critical and commercial success. A Hindi remake is currently in the works.
