Malavika Mohanan’s special plans to be with Vijay spoiled

Malavika Mohanan celebrated her birthday on Tuesday (August 4). Wishes have poured in from the fans and stars on social media. The actress revealed her birthday plans. Not only that she also called COVID-19 as stupid.

Replying to Master director Lokesh Kanagaraj who greeted her on her special day, she posted: “Thank you so much @Dir_Lokesh ! ☺️ ���� Was waiting to celebrate with #TeamMaster in Chennai, but stupid covid ☹️.”

Master team released a special poster to mark the occasion. Malavika Mohanan has become more popular by sharing regular pictures on her social media page.

She wrote on Twitter, “I feel so grateful to have gotten the chance to work with such icons and that too in my first 2 films in the Tamil industry! I have such amazing memories of working on #petta and #master !”

Last seen in Rajinikanth’s Petta directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Malavika Mohanan will be next seen in Vijay’s Master directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. Master also stars Vijay Sethupathi as the main antagonist, while Andrea Jeremiah will be seen as yet another female lead.

Talking about shooting for Master, she said, “It was like a big college picnic. It was so much fun. We made something cool and different from anything that has been made in Tamil cinema before. It was a blast working on the film. I wish I could say more but yes, it is going to be a treat for Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi fans for sure. It is going to be madness.”

Malavika completed a degree in Mass Media at Wilson College, Mumbai, hoping to emulate her father as a cinematographer or as a director. Post her graduation, while she was contemplating taking up higher studies, she accompanied her father to a commercial shoot for a fairness cream, starring veteran Malayalam actor Mammootty.

The actress subsequently enquired about Mohanan’s interest in acting, before offering her a role opposite his son, Dulquer Salmaan, in an upcoming Malayalam film. She took time to consider the proposal before passing an audition and accepting terms to star in Pattam Pole (2013), and gradually learned about the process of acting as the shoot progressed.
