This year’s Kerala state film awards function has been in the news for more reasons than one. Inviting Mohanlal as the chief guest became a big issue when a memorandum was signed by some noted names. But that ended when the state government took a bold stance and stood firm on the decision to invite the superstar.
Mohanlal’s speech at the function was a strong statement against his critics.
During the function actor Alancier, made the gesture of shooting Mohanlal when he was speaking, with a mock finger gun.
This was interpreted as the actor’s way of protesting. The actor was quoted as saying after the awards that he didn’t know why he did that action.
Now, Alancier has taken an altogether new stand. He told ‘Manorama Online’ that the gesture of shooting was in fact his way of supporting Mohanlal, who is being hunted.
