Mohanlal pairs up with ex-leading lady’s daughter

Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has teamed up with Keerthi, daughter of Kerala’s leading producer Suresh Kumar and actress Maneka, in Geetanjali

Maneka has been Mohanlal’s leading leady in numerous films, including super hits like Boeing Boeing and Poocheke Oru Mukuthi.This is not the first time he is working with the daughter of his ex-leading lady – in his 2006 film Photographer, he shared the screen space with Saranya Bhagyaraj, daughter of Poornima Jayaram, who was his heroine in his first release Manjil Virinja Pookal (1980).

But for Mohanlal such things are of little significance.”See, I am currently doing a Tamil film where I worked with Poornima Jayaram after a long time. This is a profession and many will come and go, and I am just one of the actors. The story demands that a lady has to be there and in this film it’s Keerthi,” said the superstar IANS at the shooting location of Gitanjali.

In the film, Mohanlal plays psychiatrist Sunny Joseph and he is called to treat Keerthi after she starts hallucinating, ahead of her marriage.”The film is a lot different from earlier films of Priyadarshan. As the shooting is progressing, all of us are excited. After all, for an actor, every role is a challenge and I like challenges, hence it’s all the more exciting,” said Mohanlal, who will completes 35 years Sep 3 as an actor in filmdom.
