According to latest reports, Mohanlal is all set to play Major Mahadevan once again. If the reports are to be believed, the actor will once again play the popular character in Major Ravi's upcoming war movie, which is based on the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war. But the makers are yet to confirm the reports.
Mohanlal first played Major Mahadevan in blockbuster movie Keerthi Chakra, directed by Major Ravi. The movie went on to become a huge critical and commercial success. The actor reprised his role in the sequels of the movie, Kurukshethra and Kandahar, as Colonel Mahadevan. He shared screen space with Amithabh Bachchan in Kandahar.
But both the sequels failed to repeat the success of the first part and earned mixed to negative reviews from the audience and critics. Later, Major Ravi reportedly dropped the plan to make a fourth part for the movie and moved on with other movie projects. Mohanlal joined Major for another project Karma Yodha; but the movie miserably failed at box office.
If the reports are to be believed, Major Ravi has already started scripting for the movie, with the character Mahadevan in the lead role. The director and actor are expected to make an official announcement of the project soon. The reports regarding Major Mahadevan's comeback has raised the expectation among the fans of the character and Mohanlal.
