The Priyan you never knew
(Oct 11, 2016, DG): Priyadarshan is one among the dearest movie makers of Malayalees. After a hiatus, he is now back to business with a smashing hit in the form of Mohanlal starrer ‘Oppam’. Keralites know him as a successful director, both in Mollywood and Bollywood.

But, not many are aware of his struggling days when he took up the job of a ghostwriter for many Malayalam films. A ghostwriter is a person whose job is to write material for someone else who is the named author. So, Priyan had written many scripts without receiving any credit. He had to do this for a meagre salary and it is sheer passion that fuelled him ahead.

A list of Malayalam movies ghost written by Priyadarshan:

1. Hello Madras Girl (1983)

Hello Madras Girlwas directed by J. Williams, starring Mohanlal, Shankar, Rajkumar Sethupathi, Madhavi and Poornima Jayaram.

2. Kadathu (1981)

Kadathu was directed by PG Vishwambharan. It had Prem Nazir, Shankar, MG Soman and Roja Ramani in lead roles.

3. Sindoora Sandhyakku Mounam (1982)

Sindoora Sandhyakku Mounam, directed by I. V. Sasi had Mohanlal, Lakshmi, Madhavi, Ratheesh, Kuthiravattom Pappu and Prathap Pothen in main roles.

Priyan has come a long way from there and emerged unbeatable. Another example of how hardwork pays rich dividents!
