Arun Gopy shot to fame with his debut movie Ramaleela which was a huge hit at the box office. However, his second movie Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu showed a dismal performance in theaters. The film failed to elicit the desired recognition in spite of having all the elements of an entertainer. Arun Gopy attended the 100 days celebrations of Jis Joy's Vijay Superum Pournamiyum and revealed the actual reason for his film's failure. Jis Joy had always made feel-good movies which had plenty of goodness in it. Arun said that as Jis Joy was an extremely good person, it reflected in his films. But, since he was not as good as Jis Joy, his film failed. He said that he should learn a lot from his friend Jis Joy.
