Mohanlal on Malaikottai Vaaliban
In a promotional event, Mohanlal said, "The basic idea of 'Malaikottai Vaaliban' began germinating within me a couple of years ago and then metamorphosed into a comprehensive plot. A writer like Rafeeq expanded that world, and it was only then that we realised Lalettan (Mohanlal) was the perfect fit for that role.”
