The Malayalam superstar, who is all excited about Malaikottai Vaaliban, admitted that he is set to appear in a never-seen-before avatar in the film. However, when he was asked if he ever had a dream project or role, Mohanlal had a funny yet interesting reply. According to the veteran actor, he never really had a career plan, all these years. Mohanlal stated that it is impossible for an actor to plan and decide that this is the next project they want to do.


The senior actor pointed out that he never decided to do a project like Malaikottan Vaaliban ever, but it happened organically. Mohanlal stated that every film of his illustrious career materialised similarly. Interestingly, the superstar stated that acting is the only job he knows and wants to take forward his career just like that. The superstar, in his signature style, also stated that he doesn’t like to plan things or think too much about the future. Instead, he prefers to be happy and take life as it comes.
