Mohanlal completes four decades of his film career

Mohanlal is undoubtedly one of the most gifted actors in Indian Cinema. This Malayalam actor's fame is not limited only to his territory but also expanded throughout the country. He is also called as 'The Complete Actor' by film fans. Mohanlal completes 41 years of his film career today and on this occasion, let us have a look at it.

Mohanlal made his debut in 1978 with the film Thiranottam. Due to various issues, the film didn't release on time and had hit the screens 25 years later. He got his first major breakthrough in 1980 with the film Manjil Virinja Pookkal, in which he acted as a villain. During the early stages of his career, Mohanlal mostly got negative roles and he excelled in all of them.
After 1986, he started getting lead roles and since then, there was no looking back for the actor. Slowly, he ventured into the other film industries as well. Mohanlal is part of successful other language films like Iruvar (Tamil), Company (Hindi) and Janatha Garage (Telugu). His film Lucifer is the highest-grossing film in the history of Malayalam cinema. Mohanlal won seven national awards, nine Kerala State Awards and nine Filmfare awards in his career. We congratulate him on his achievements and we wish he does more memorable roles in the future.
