As the complete actor Mohanlal sat flanked by ace directors Fazil, Joshiy, Sathyan Anthikad and Sibi Malayil, it was a perfect moment to reminisce some of the most beautiful cinematic memories.
The occasion was the recent Manorama Newsmaker Award function where the directors shared 'extraordinary' experiences involving the actor. Film-maker Fazil, who introduced Mohanlal into the world of films in his super hit movie Manjil Virinja Pookkal, was all praise for the actor’s great observation skills and his perpetual readiness to learn new things.
The director even recalled an event from one of his shooting locations a few years ago. While the entire crew was taking a break in between the hectic shooting schedule, a beautiful girl walked into the sets. The set was suddenly bustling with a vibe and everybody was trying to catch a glance of her.
Meanwhile, director Fazil was looking for Mohanlal who was nowhere to be seen at the time. When the actor returned after a while, Fazil talked about the beautiful girl in a rather exaggerated manner. After hearing the director’s rant about the girl, Mohanlal casually asked, “Pachikka, are you talking about that girl who came in a violet churidar.” Fazil’s words were received with thunderous applause by the audience as they were clearly excited to hear an amazing episode from their favorite actor’s life.
Though Fazil had presented this incident in a lighter vein, he elucidated the incredible observation skills of Mohanlal.
This capability of Mohanlal to reinvent himself is indeed the greatest quality that makes him the complete actor and the super star who rules the screens.
