Fahadh Faasil, the most talented young actor of M'town, feels that Mohanlal is an inspiration for all the actors. Fahadh was talking in the Onam special interview, given to popular Malayalam film magazine Nana.
According to Fahadh, he started admiring Mohanlal deeply, after watching the superhit movie Gandhinagar 2nd Street. The young actor feels that Mohanlal has a magical power to transform into a character, which is better known to him.
He also feels that Mohanlal plays each character in totally different styles. His portrayal of a character will not have any similarities with an earlier role played by himself. This is not possible for the other actors.
Fahadh also points out that Mohanlal can play a helpless man onscreen without the baggage of a superstar. The best example for that quality is Drishyam, in which he played a commoner without any inhibitions.
He also added that no young actor, including himself cannot replace Mohanlal and his works. Fahadh was approached to act in the remake of a Mohanlal starrer classic movie; but he rejected the offer stating that no one can replace Mohanlal.
The young actor has been very close to Mohanlal since his childhood. The magical actor was introduced to the movie industry with Manjil Virinja Pookkal, which was directed by Fahadh's father Fazil, the veteran filmmaker
