Mallu Arjun’s first venture into the world of Mollywood film industry earned him a big loyal audience base who had a love for Telugu-style, larger-than-life cinema. Thrilled with this reward, the actor went on to promote the film Julayi in Kerala.
Stepping into Arjun’s shoes is now the actor Vijay whose popularity is ever increasing in Kerala, most recently in the form of film Thupakki, which opened big in Kerala. He now plans to impress his fans in a new way, in the form of some forthcoming films of the ‘Ilayathalapathy’ which is expected to feature the top Malayalam star Mohanlal in a key role. “When Vijay met Mohanlal recently and expressed his wish to work with him, the Mollywood superstar did not have any second thought and immediately gave his nod,” sources said.
