In a series of tweets by Raaj Kamal Films International, the actor fondly shared his memories of Mohan. “It was a always a laugh riot when we got together and it would be funny to watch him running out of the set bursting out loud into laughter uncontrollably during a shot to avoid spraying the set with betel leaves and nut juice in his mouth, while I improvise further on the lines,” said Haasan. He also said that the climax of Avvai Shanmugi was conceived during a drive back from Pondy.

Mohan passed away in 2019 following a cardiac arrest. He was 67. Kamal Haaan and Mohan have delivered several blockbusters including classics such as Apoora Sagodhararagal, Michael Madhana Kama Rajan, Avvai Shanmugi, Panchathanthiram and Vasool Raja MBBS to mention a few.

Apart from his films with Haasan, Mohan’s other notable work include Chinna Vathiyar, Vietnam Colony, Arunachalam, Aahaa and Naan Ee.
