M alayalam actor Mohanlal made his TV debut on Friday with a chat show on Malayalam channel Amrita TV. The show, titled Lal Salaam, is meant to take the audience through Lalettan’s illustrious career spanning nearly four decades and will feature his co-actors as guests who have made important roles in the actor’s life. With Lal Salaam, Mohanlal has joined the likes of Indian film superstars such as Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan and Kamal Haasan, who also made his TV screen debut recently with the Tamil version of a reality show Bigg Boss.
However, unlike other stars’ shows, Lal Salaam is not just for entertainment. The Mohanlal show will also provide a platform to raise the voices that have been making changes in the society. This being the south superstar’s debut on the small screen, the show has created a huge buzz in the television channel industry in Kerala.
The program, in a way, salutes such dedicated souls. Through various episodes, we also honor those who render valuable service like civil servants, police personnel, fire and security services, etc. Also, we are giving an opportunity to the die-hard fans of Shri Mohanlal to meet him through the program, be it a child, an elderly person, celebrities or those who are underprivileged.
Through this show, Lal Salaam, Amrita TV plans to take people to Lalettan’s world (Mohanlal’s world in Malayalam) where they meet people who have been associated with the star, friends, well-wishers and colleagues on a single platform and discuss all the stages, pain and fun they had with each other on their journey.
