The actor will recount the ‘golden days of Malayalam cinema’ through the YouTube channel
Celebrities are waking up to the potential of digital platforms and Mollywood actor Mukesh’s latest venture is a huge sign to that. The actor and politician recently announced that he will be starting a new show titled Mukesh Speaking on his YouTube channel of the same name.
Mollywood superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal released two separate teasers announcing the launch of the channel. Mukesh had earlier launched a successful book titled Mukesh Kathakal that had humorous stories from his childhood and college days to the time he was working in movies such as In Harihar Nagar.
The latest venture, according to the teasers, will focus mostly on the “golden age of Malayalam cinema”, as he puts it. “
In one teaser, Mukesh talked about Mohanlal's disappointment that stories that the late actor Thukkurissy Sukumaran Nair had shared with them during their shoots in the 80s and early 90s, are now more or less forgotten. “Mohanlal said that I remember a lot of stories from our time and that I should document it. In this digital age, we as well as the next generation should know that we lived through a time filled with love, friendship and humour. So, this is a humble effort from my side to recount the stories that I remember,” said Mukesh.
In the second teaser shared by Mammootty, Mukesh talked about how he could interact with actors from several industries over the years. “All of them say in solidarity that they couldn’t find the unity and friendship that exist in the Malayalam film industry anywhere else,” he said, adding that Mukesh Speaking will be a journey through that time.
Considering that Mukesh Kathakal, which aired in Kairali TV, had a good following, the YouTube show of the actor too is expected to get a good response.
