Malayalam superstar Mohanlal is hitting headlines over some or other reason. The actor has been facing the ire of WCC for revoking the suspension of accused actor Dileep. Now, the actor is in the news over a recent textile advertisement. A textile industry has served legal notice to the actor for showing a misleading ad. Mohanlal, in a commercial promoting the textile house, is seen spinning the charkha. Kerala Khadi and Village Industries Board has issued a legal notice to both the parties to withdraw the advertisement.
The President of the Kerala Khadi and Village Industries Board, Shobhana George, in an interview to the PTI, said, “Legal notices have been issued to both the textile group and Mohanlal. There is no connection between the charkha, which is a symbol of the freedom struggle, with the textiles sold by the group.”
Shobhana George further added that being a Padamshree awardee, Mohanlal should refrain from appearing in such advertisement.
On the work front, Mohanlal has an interesting line-up of films like Odiyan, Kayamkulam Kochunni, and Neerali. Odiyan will have Mohanlal sport multiple looks ranging from a 25-year-old to a 60-year-old while Kayamkulam Kochunni will have Mohanlal playing a period character.
Neerali is a new-age film and is being directed by Ajoy Varma which was launched recently. And guess what Mohanlal will also croon a romantic single in the film alongside Shreya Ghoshal which will be composed by Stephen Devassy.
Odiyan is one of the anticipated films of the year. The makers of the film had recently shared the first teaser and it received a good response on the social media. The film is currently in post-production stage and the makers are eyeing to release it in October this year. While the makers are still in the post-production stage, Odiyan’s pre-release business is grabbing all the attention.
