In 1990, Vinayan directed a movie titled Superstar with an actor whom he introduced and named Madanlal, who resembled Mohanlal. Ever since Mohanlal is said to have been angry with Vinayan.
Things seem to have ended on a positive note now as Vinayan posted a picture of himself with Mohanlal. The director says that he will direct the superstar in a film, the shooting of which will start after his next.
Vinayan was once an all powerful President of MACTA but later he was left on his own with almost the entire industry staying away from him. Vinayan has fought the battle all alone and achieved success. His last film, Chalakkudikkaran Changathi, was a big hit.
