Rumours have been doing their rounds for a while now about popular Malayalam Superstar, Mohanlal joining politics. With the Lok Sabha elections round the corner, it is rumoured that the actor may be contesting the election from Thiruvananthapuram as a BJP candidate. Vimal Kumar, a leader of one of the leading Mohanlal Fans Association was heard saying in a television interview that the state would face severe protests if Mohanlal makes that move. He felt that it is not good for Mohanlal to affiliate with any political party. He added that the Superstar was a public asset of the nation. They loved him as an actor and do not wish to see him as a politician.
The rumour mill is probably abuzz because Mohanlal has been honoured with the Padma Bhushan recently. The actor himself, has many times stated that he will not be entering politics.
