During an interview, Mohanlal was asked about his contemporary Mammootty and their competition in the film industry. Stating that they had shared the screen space in about 54 films, Mohanlal said there was never a competition between the two at any point – healthy or otherwise. The actor pointed out that both of them have carved out different paths and a role offered for one cannot be taken up by the other.

He was quoted by the TOI as saying: “Healthy competition? There was never a competition between us. We have acted in 54 movies together. Chances of us competing for a movie now are also few because we have plenty of films.”

He went on add, “Roles that come to Mammuka are not meant for me and vice versa. I would never say we have competed against each other unless we are acting in the same movie and are putting tour de force performances to outwit each other.”

Mohanlal also made it clear that he would give his best for every film but cannot guarantee that it would score a century at the box office.
