Saiju Kurup still regrets not doing this film

Saiju Kurup entered Malayalm film industry with the critically acclaimed Mayookham helmed by veteran film maker Hariharan. The film introduced Mamta Mohandas into the industry too. Saiju says that he was an Airtel employee and had taken 2 months break for the film. After that, he had to take two weeks off for his wedding. He had exhausted all his leave that he could not even go for dubbing for his role in Mayookahm and it was done by Harishanth. During this period, many offers came his way and he could not not accept them due to the unavailability of leave. But, he still regrets not accepting one film-Lal Jose's Chanthipottu. The film was a superhit and it starred Dileep as a man with a dysfunctional upbringing.
