Mohanlal, the actor who is back after a short holiday, celebrated his birthday on the sets of his upcoming movie, Kanal. Mohanlal has shared the photos of the celebration, on his Facebook page.
The cast and crew members of Kanal arranged a surprise birthday cake for the actor at the day of his joining; as he was not available on his birthday. Mohanlal celebrated his 55th birthday on May 21st, in Japan.
The actor was supposed to join the sets of Kanal by the first week of June. But the filming of the movie, which is directed by Padmakumar, has been preponed due to undisclosed reasons.
Anoop Menon will be playing a key role along with Mohanlal in Kanal. Honey Rose will essay the female lead opposite Mohanlal. She Taxi fame Sheelu Abraham will pair up with Anoop Menon in the movie.
Padmakumar has earlier directed Mohanlal in the action thriller Shikkar, which was a decent success at box office. Kanal is an ambitious project for the director, who is going through a low phase in his career.
The role essayed by Anoop Menon was earlier offered to Prithviraj; which the actor turned down due to his tight schedule. Kanal is produced by Abraham Mathew, under the banner Abaam Movies.
