One superstar was born on 20th and another bigger star was born the next day. He has left fans enamoured for the last thirty years and more and there’s nothing stopping. In fact, we don’t want him to stop because when it comes to this veteran actor he never ceases to amaze! He is the epitome of talent, skill and versatility. Can’t believe he turns 58 today because he looks nowhere close to that. He is one of the most loved actors of Malayalam cinema – We are of course talking about Mohanlal! Today on his birthday we have only one question – Is there anything you cannot do? This actor is a legend! As a personal fan today I want to give you 5 reasons why this actor will never cease to amaze. Mohanlal’s latest still from Odiyan is what eerie dreams are made of
Multi-talented – Mohanlal is an actor who has risen to the occasion with innumerable films – Bharatham, Keeradam, Vietnam Colony, His Highness Abdulla, Chithram, Thenmavin Kombathu, Yodha, Thenmavin Kombathu, Ustaad, Araam Thampuran, Akkare Akkare Akkare, Drishyam, most recently Oppam, Pulimurugan. Each of these movies is spread across different genres – from family drama to psychological thrillers to love story to comic capers to actioners, the veteran actor has done it all but he continues to take on new challenges and projects. He is synonymous with versatility. Who else can play a Kathalakil dancer, a con man, a thug, a regular family, a talented singer and leave you in wonder?
Sustainable actor – Mohanlal has been in the industry for thirty-eight years now but he still remains the most sought after. He has as many as four projects lined up currently – There’s Neerali coming up in June, he has already shot for Kayakulam Kochunni. The big mega budget that will star him in a never-seen-before role is Odiyan where he will play a shape-shifting creature from an extinct tribe. He will also begin shooting for Randamoozhan, a take on Mahabharata where he plays Bharatham. The movie is reportedly going to be made on a budget of Rs 1000 crore, thus making it the most expensive project to date.
Loves his fans –Mohanlal is one of those few actors who always makes sure to thank his fans for all the success that comes his way. Every time he has signed on a new film he is the first to make an announcement on social media just for his fans. He is not only on Facebook but also on Twitter. He has managed to keep up with the times and how.
Grand commercial success – Not only talented, he is one of the most commercially viable stars. Each of his films creates a storm at the box office. He is the only Malayalam actor whose film has grossed over Rs 100 crore at the box office worldwide. Tallent plus commercial success – What more do you want.
Impeccable dancer – This man along with acting has also got the moves. For certain films like Kamaldhalam, Vanaprastham, he trained in a specific form of dances while in the other films he has managed to sway with such grace that you can’t but root for him. He is an easy-breezy dancer that you can’t help but love.
