Kalabhavan Shajon did not have to fight with Mohanlal in Munthirivallikalal Thalirkkumbol
Kalabhavan Shajon started his career as a comedy artist in the industry. He slowly evolved as an actor and is now one of the busiest supporting actors currently in the Malayalam industry.
During the audio launch of Mohanlal’s upcoming movie Munthirivallikalal Thalirkkumbol, in which he is also playing a character, Shajon talked about how the movie came as a huge relief to him.
He said, ” For the last two years, Mohanlal’s fans were furious on me for beating him in the movie Drishyam. I was very hesitant to act again in a similar kind of role in Oppam, where I had to beat him again.
But director Priyadarshan encouraged him and said, this time Mohanlal will fight back. When I watched the movie in theatre, I was very happy to see the audience’s response after he gave me the first punch. That showed the anger the fans had on me.
Both the movies were huge blockbusters, and without that I will not be standing here today. When the role in this new movie came my way, the first thing I asked was whether I will have to beat Lalettan again. Only after that I hopped on to the project.
During the shoot of the movie in Kozhikode, a group of youngsters told me that they will not let me go back home safely if I dare to beat Lalettan again. However, they were very happy after watching the shoot.”
Munthirivallikalal Thalirkkumbol is written by M Sindhuraj and directed by Vellimoonga fame Jibu Jacob. The movie is based on a short story Pranayopanishad written by James VJ. Sophia Paul has funded this movie under the banner Weekend Blockbusters.
