The ‘mike man’ is all set to make a come back. Mohan, whose movies were the musical sensations in the 1980s, is keen at making it big again. For that, he has decided to start a new film.
If sources are to be believed, the movie will have Anuya (of ‘SMS’ and ‘Madurai Sambavam’ fame) opposite Mohan and will be an entertainer targeted at all groups of audiences.
“Mohan himself may direct the movie. As of now, the only thing that is confirmed is Anuya is the heroine,” say sources. They also say an official announcement will be made soon by the actor.
He attempted a comeback by producing, directing, and playing the lead role in Anbulla Kadhalukku. Unfortunately the movie flopped. He took a new avatar as the producer of tele-serials and managed successfully to come out with a serial in a prominent Tamil satellite channel Sun TV. Mohan again played the hero after a hiatus of nine years in the moderate success film Sutta Pazham, a low budget production.
Also in 2008, Mohan’s Civic Cinema produced Thalappavu, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Lal, the debut directorial venture of popular actor Madhupal, based on the controversial and real-life confession of police constable Raveendran Pillai who gunned down the Naxalite leader Varghese on 18 February 1970, in the jungles of Wayanad in North Kerala.
Mohan made a come back to Kannada film through Ghautham directed by Rajeev Prasad starring Prem Kumar, Sara, and Ananth Nag which was released in July 2009.
