Laljose express his views to City Journal on current trends:
“The new trends in the industry should be accepted. Every time there will be a new generation to come up with new trends and the older people have to make way for them,” said Laljose. Pathmarajan and Bharat Gopi were the stars of their time but later came Madhu, Kamal, Sathyan Anthikkad and others. So this will continue and only then the industry will grow, he added.
When asked about style of language used in the recent films, Laljose said, “The style of language depends on the type of characters and if the character demands it, there is nothing wrong in it.” But he did criticize the misuse of foul language in films.
