‘Snehaveedu’, not ‘Pranayam’ to be Mohanlal’s 300th

The actor has heeded to his fans’ request that this milestone should be celebrated with a masala movie

A few days back we had reported that Mohanlal had stopped promoting the recently released Pranayam as his 300th film. This was mainly because his fans insisted that the actor’s milestone should be a full-fledged entertainer and not a serious movie.It seems the superstar has accepted the collective wisdom of his fans and decided to appear in a wholesome family entertainer. Officially, Snehaveedu, directed by veteran Sathyan Anthikad, will now be promoted as Mohanlal’s 300th movie. Sathyan goes back to his original and successful family film formula in this flick. This ‘feel-good’ film has Mohanlal essaying the role of a farmer with Padmapriya as his heroine. Veteran actor Sheela is playing his mother. Ashokan, Innocent and Biju Menon also play important roles in the film. The film is slated for a September 30 release.
