Malayalam superstar Mohanlal recently met Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and shared photos showing him with the CM on his Facebook page on June 14. A week after the meeting, the actor has now written an open letter to Pinarayi in his blog, 'The Complete Actor,' pointing out the areas that need special attention.
"Respected Kerala CM Pinarayai Vijayan sir, This is not a letter written by actor Mohanlal, instead it is a petition given to you by Mohanlal, who lives in Kerala," Mohanlal begins his blog post on June 21. The main contents of the letter, roughly translated from Malayalam, are as follows:
"For the past many years, I have been writing a blog on the 21st of every month on the issues that affect our society. The topics that I experience and read myself or the ones told by my friends. While many have appreciated me, there are other who have attacked me for stating my opinions. But I have always accepted both as there can be two opinions in each and every matter. Through my blog, I have already pointed out many issues faced in Kerala and I present a few of them before you as I feel there is no future for Kerala without sorting them."
The actor specifically calls attention to waste disposal, over-speeding and accidents, traffic issues, and abuse of the elderly, women and children as the major issues faced by people in Kerala. Mohanlal has also requested the CM to take effective measures for the protection of the environment.
On the career front, Mohanlal, who was last seen in "Kanal" is awaiting the release of "Pulimurugan" and "Oppam". He also has two Telugu projects in his kitty, including "Janatha Garage" and "Manamantha."
