The Complete Actor surprised everyone when he donned his army uniform celebrating 66th Republic Day
Actor Mohanlal was proud to have attended the 2015 Republic Day parade. This year was more special as it was United States President Barack Obama who was the chief guest.
Mohanlal and his wife Suchitra were seated in the VIP section of guests at the parade in New Delhi and despite the rain watched the entire event. He also spoke to the media about the event and his experience.
Mohanlal has never been in the army but in 2008 he acted in the film Kurukshetra where he played an Army officer. At that time, he wanted to join the Territorial Army of India as an officer and he was inducted into the Territorial Army in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel by then Army Chief Deepak Kapoor. He is the first and in fact the only Indian actor to get this title. He was already 42 years of age at that time and they changed the rules to allow him to get this position.
On his social networking page Mohanlal said it was a proud moment for every Indian on attending the Republic Day celebration.
