Alphonse Puthren, one of the most sought-after filmmakers of Malayalam cinema, has been on a break from the past 5 years. Earlier, the Premam director had announced that he is joining hands with Kalidas Jayaram for his next directorial venture. Recently, Alphonse Puthren finally confirmed that the much-awaited project is shelved.
In the recent interview given to Film Companion, the young filmmaker revealed that he was planning a musical drama with Kalidas Jayaram in the lead role, after the huge success of his last outing Premam. But he had to drop the project later, as the young actor decided to back out from the project since it took a long time to get materialised.
However, Alphonse Puthren is in no mood to put the blame on Kalidas Jayaram and revealed that it was he who asked the actor to move on. According to the hitmaker, Kalidas had already signed around 10 projects at that time and there was no point in waiting for his project in such a situation.
