A picture is worth a thousand words. And in the case of celebrities, each picture will have a story of its own. Here we present to you a special collection of photographs picked from the various stages of life, of Malayalam cinema's magical actor Mohanlal.
Mohanlal is completing the 35th year of his acting career. The actor is doubtlessly one of the finest acting talents that Indian cinema has ever witnessed. His impeccable abilities to portray any kind of roles made him the favorite star of audience.
The two time National Award winner has also been ranked as the Third Greatest Indian Actor, in the IMDb list of 100 greatest actors of Indian Cinema. He has won the fourth highest civilian award of the country, Padma Shri for his contributions towards Indian cinema.
Born to late Viswanathan Nair, former law secretary and Santhakumari as the youngest child of the family, Mohanlal expressed deep interest in arts from his school days. He started acting in school plays from a very young age and has won the Best Actor award in school level drama competitions.
Mohanlal has always been vocal about the strong bonds he share with his contemporaries. The actor is the best buddy of director Priyadarshan, actor Manianpilla Raju and singer MG Sreekumar. He also shares a warm relationship with his contemporary actors, including Mammootty. And that is the secret of his strong existence in the field of cinema.
