Lal salaam!

MOHANLAL WHO has been in the film industry for the past 25 years, has 239 films, two national and countless other awards to his credit. Last Sunday, over 25,000 people turned up at his alma mater Mahatma Gandhi College grounds in Thiruvananthapuram to witness a show titled "Thiranottam", a flashback of the life and times of Mohanlal in the industry, organised by his friends. Union and State Ministers, including Chief Minister A. K. Antony, were present at the function along with producers, directors, co-stars and technicians. Mohanlal admits to feeling great, but if you get him to talk about himself, what you hear are a few monosyllables. However, Ramgopal Varma said in his speech: "I would rate him as one of the finest actors in the country who can slip into any role easily." Another happy news for Mohanlal was that his Onam release "Balettan" turned out to be a super hit.
