As per the latest reports, Kerala Government has decided not to take back the payment given to Mohanlal, for the Lalisom show. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy revealed the decision of Government, in the Legislative Assembly today. The Chief Minister stated that the Government is totally satisfied with the show and requested Mohanlal to withdraw the repayment.
Mohanlal, on the other hand, is staying strong in his decision. The actor says that he doesn't want the remuneration from a programme, which led to the strong oppositions from media and huge social media attacks. The sources close to the actor says that Mohanlal is extremely hurt and disappointed due to the recent controversies.
According to the authorities, Mohanlal was approached at the final moment for the show. The committee was planning to conduct a big music concert; but dropped the plan due to excessive budget. The authorities revealed that Mohanlal and team didn't have enough time for the preparation and practice.
Earlier, sports minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan had blamed the Lalisom show, for the big failure of National Games inaugural function; to much disappointment of Mohanlal. According to the latest reports, Mohanlal himself will be clearing the payments of the singers and technicians of Lalisom show.
