Mohan Lal's Strict No To Telugu Films

Malayalam superstar Mohanlal did two straight films in Telugu in quick succession. Manamantha in which he played the lead role was a huge flop despite the critical acclaim. Janatha Garage went on to become one of the highest grossing movies in the history.

Mohanlal has been getting many more offers from Telugu cinema industry, but he decided to stay away from Tollywood as he is currently going great guns in Malayalam cinema.

His recent Malayalam release Oppam went on to become one of the biggest hits of the year.

Both Manamantha and Janatha Garage failed to create any buzz in Kerala in spite of Lalettan’s presence.

Mohanlal expected these films to do well and took Malayalam dubbing rights as his remuneration. He is not happy with the performance of both the movies in his home ground.

He decided not to do other language films for a while as his straight films are performing exceptionally well in Malayalam.
