Pranav Mohanlal is hard working and acting comes naturally to him: Lena
Lena is unarguably one of the most talented Malayali actresses we have at present. After years of toiling in television serials and doing small supporting roles, Lena made her way up and carved a niche for herself in the Malayalam film industry. Some of her best performances came in movies like Traffic, Left Right Left, Vikramadithyan and Ennu Ninte Moideen.
Earlier this year, Lena played the role of Pranav Mohanlal’s mother in Aadhi. The actress was all praise of Pranav in a recent interview to TOI. She is quoted saying, “He is very hard working and I think acting comes naturally to him. It’s in his genes. Be it doing parkour or playing the guitar, he practises everything and wants to bring perfection to it. Though he is quite shy and laidback, he has a lot of depth and is focused.”
Aadhi is probably the only movie in Lena’s career where she was criticized for her performance. As a young mother who is anxious about her son’s safety, Lena’s performance went slightly overboard. Lena herself has admitted that she performed that way as director Jeethu Joseph felt that’s how a woman who became a mother at a very young age would behave.
Lena is currently in the Himalayas for a brief break from her busy professional life. Paviettande Madhurachoorala and Vaarikuzhiyile Kolapathakam are her upcoming releases.
