Noted Malayalam writer T Padmanabhan is known for his frankness of opinion on whatever matter it be.

In an interview given to Grihalakshmi, he has made some revelations relating to the Malayalam film industry and its most popular actors Mohanlal and Mammootty.

According to Padmanabhan, Mohanlal and Mammootty are his favourite actors in the industry, but what they are doing now is totally unacceptable.

“At this age, they are romancing actresses of their granddaughter’s age which is not admissible,” he opines.

“Even though they are top class actors, the domination of stars existing in the industry is because of them too. This is a big mistake,” Padmanabhan added.

National award winner Surabhi Lakshmi is his favourite actress.

Padmanabhan who wishes to see movies in the ambience of silence, said that Papanasam, remake of Malayalam movie Drishyam was the last film he saw at the theatre.

To him, it was Kamal Haasan who performed better than Mohanlal in the lead role.

Padmanabhan is also of the opinion that the movie industry is the cemetery of genuine writers. It requires no great person or literary work, he adds.
