Foraying into a new arena, actor Mohanlal has launched a music band called Lalisom. The first show is to be held in February next year with a musical biography of the actor when a retrospective into his 36-year-long celluloid journey will be musically crafted.
The over two-hour show which will see use of modern techniques including hologram technology and special effects, to portray various characters immortalised by the actor. At least 40 songs from Lal’s various films will also be a part of the show.
Mohanlal, who will also be part of the band, proposes to conduct the show at various stages in the country and abroad.
Announcing the launch of the band in Kochi recently, Mohanlal said during his over three-decade film career, he had opportunity to essay a diverse range of characters.
“This is not just a ganamela. I feel blessed that I had very good songs in my films sung by veteran singers like Yesudas, Jayachandran and M. G. Sreekumar. This is a journey through my life and films. My life’s philosophy, my characters are all there. This is a thanksgiving to all those who were with me all these years. Since I am an actor, this is the only way I can reciprocate and consider this as my gift”, he said.
The show will have eight artists including women. Music director Rateesh Vegh is the music composer.
