When Jeethu Joseph revealed why he cast Mohanlal in Neru
Talking to a portal, the filmmaker recently revealed, “In terms of the age of the character, he was the right fit. Also, this isn’t the type of role that he has played in recent years. Even in his entire career, he hasn’t done full-fledged courtroom drama as a lawyer. Other actors have done similar roles before. That’s the prime reason, apart from him being one of the finest actors in our country.”
