When Mohanlal Disowned His Own Movie: I Am Not Bothered Even If They Delete My Scenes

|

Mohanlal, fondly referred to as 'Lalettan', is arguably one of the most decorated and revered names in the Malayalam film industry. During his illustrious career, the veteran has starred in quite a few cult classics, and proved that he is Mollywood's undisputed 'Complete Actor'. In 2006, Mohanlal found himself in the limelight for a surprising reason when the makers of Keerthichakra released its Tamil version (Aran) without asking him to dub for it. As expected, this took a toll on the film's prospects, resulting in it being a dud in Tamil Nadu. With the controversy in full swing, Mohanlal had spoken to Rediff, disowning Aran.

Slamming the makers for using a dubbing artiste without his consent, Mohanlal said that he would have loved to dub in Tamil as Keerthichakra/Aran was an emotional drama on relationships.

"Keerthichakra is not an action film but a film about relationships and people. Although the backdrop is militancy in Kashmir, there are emotional elements that I feel the actor himself should dub. Otherwise, the essence will be lost," (sic) said Mohanlal.

Reacting to reports of Aran featuring additional footage of actor Jiiva, Mohanlal said that he would not feel bad even if the makers removed his scenes completely as he was least bothered about the film and its prospects.

"It is their product. Let them do whatever they want. I am not bothered even if they delete my scenes. To tell you the truth, I don't want to have anything to do with the Tamil version."

Following Mohanlal's outburst, producer RB Chowdhary said that they got someone to dub for Mohanlal as the popular actor was in London for a shoot. Similarly, director Major Ravi said that the team had 'no other option'.

With Aran/Keerthichakra in the past, Mohanlal is busy ruling Mollywood. His latest Malayalam movie Ittymaani Made In China released this Onam and is doing decent business at the box office. He was also seen in the Tamil biggie Kaappaan. He is currently working on Big Brother and the historical drama Marakkar. All in all, his fans have plenty to look forward to.
