Malavika Mohanan gets an exciting action movie
Malavika Mohanan, who had made her Kollywood debut with Superstar Rajnikanth starrer Petta directed by Karthik Subbaraj had next bagged another big project in Tamil with the Lokesh Kanagaraj directed Vijay starrer Master.
While Malavika Mohanan had already acted in an international movie Beyond the clouds directed by Majid Majidi, now she’s set to make her Bollywood debut with an untitled action movie which will be directed by Ravi Udyawar who directed Sridevi‘s last movie Mom.
This movie which will have Malavika Mohanan in an action packed role will have her paired with Siddhant chaturvedi who was seen in Ranveer Singh starrer Gully Boy. Meanwhile, Malavika Mohanan will be seen as a college professor in Master which is expected to release this Diwali.
Malavika Mohanan’s career could possibly be split into three timelines: her debut as a fresh-faced actor in Malayalam film Pattam Pole (2013); her true breakout role that informed the rest of the country of her considerable talents with Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds (2017); and then, a small but significant part in Rajinikanth’s Petta (2019) that somehow catapulted her towards becoming the ‘it’ girl of social media.
The daughter of renowned cinematographer K.U. Mohanan, Malavika, who grew up in a family of “film enthusiasts” as she calls them, surrounded by DVDs, books and conversations on films with her dad, didn’t consider acting as a career at all, until the opportunity presented itself when actor Mammoooty offered her a chance to act opposite his son Dulquer.
Seven years on — she labels them a trying period when she was searching for that elusive break — Malavika’s part of the most-anticipated Tamil film of the year with Vijay’s Master and set to star in a big-budget Bollywood film shortly too.
