His screen rival superstar Mammootty came out with a video wishing Lal all the best.

” We known each other for over three decades and had a wonderful journey together. Whenever he calls me aichetten’, I feel some sort of emotional attachment. Though a few others also address me like that, I don’t get the same feel, as when Lal addresses me that way. Beyond films also we have had an excellent relation and let us all travel forward, though we do not know how long, but as long it happens, let us move together,a said Mammootty.
