Nivin clarifies his stance

Nivin Pauly, who is facing the wrath of Mohanlal fans after the episode where he allegedly refused to pick up superstar's phone calls repeatedly, has come up with a clarification in his Facebook page. It reads like this:

"There is a news spreading about me not picking MOHANLAL sir's call....honestly such an incident has never occurred... there is not even a single time where i have showed disrespect towards LAL sir or any other actors. i am extremely disappointed with this fake news.......I respect MOHANLAL sir as always..." 

Now the ball is in Mohanlal's court. Will he give his version about the whole controversy? Watch this space for more.

Nivin ignores Mohanlal?

This has been one story doing the rounds during the past few weeks. But now it has come out in a film magazine and the social media is debating it threadbare. 

The issue goes like this. Superstar Mohanlal called up young hero Nivin Pauly at least six times recently, to be part of his latest venture Gitanjali, directed by Priyadarshan. But it is said that Nivin didn't pick his call.

Innocent, who was with Mohanlal, then called up Nivin and asked him why was he ignoring the superstar. The report says that Nivin told Innocent that he is not interested in playing a supporting role in a Mohanlal film. 

Is this story true? Nobody knows for sure. But Mohanlal's fans are up in arms against the young sensation.
