Mohanlal: The down to earth star!

You know, there are many reasons why Mohanlal commands such love and respect from his hardcore fans, and his down to earth ways are probably one of things that have gained him the affectionate nickname Lalettan.


Producer of the movie Peruchazhi, Vijay Babu, recently commented on this when he was narrating the story of how Mohanlal cooked for the team of the movie, during their stint in the US. The Universal Star made some choice dishes with eggs and beef for not just his Indian colleagues but their western counterparts as well. Delicious would be the only way to describe it, reminisced Vijay Babu.

Lalettan’s love for food is well known and he is admittedly a foodie. Perhaps this is the reason why he was one of the first among the superstars to get in to the restaurant and packed foods businesses. His hotel in Kochi, Travancore Court, is often a testing ground for many innovative food ideas and cuisine based extravaganzas.


After Peruchazhi wrapped up, the star, along with his wife Suchithra and some others, made the trip to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup finals, as he had announced weeks ago.

And would you know it, some fan there managed to spot him from a distance in the huge stadium crowd. The picture went viral across the social media and the complete actor thanked his fan on his own social media page for his effort.

The iconic actor also posted many photos of him taken during the trip and the journey back through many idyllic locations, much to the joy of the fans.

His upcoming movie now would be Peruchazhi, directed by Arun Vaidyanathan. It stars him and Mukesh in lead roles and is touted as a laugh riot of a satire of Indian and American politics with an additional mix of all the usual masala ingredients.

It is being produced by Vijay Babu and Sandra Thomas under the banner of Friday Film House. The movie is slated for release on August 29th, as of now.
