Mohanlal celebrates his 60th birthday today. Fondly known as Lalettan among his fans, Mohanlal has worked in over 300 films in a career spanning four decades.

Mohanlal’s fans are waiting for his upcoming films that will hopefully hit theaters after the coronavirus pandemic. The much-awaited films include Priyardarshan’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, Lucifer sequel Empuraan, Jeethu Joseph’s Ram and his own directorial debut Barroz.

Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham was originally scheduled to release in March 2020, but due to cinema halls being shut nationwide following the coronavirus outbreak, the film’s release was inevitably postponed.
