Yesterday Mohanlal replied to the whole controversy through a Facebook post. People were criticizing him for the failure of the show done by Lalisom at National Games in trivandrum and some even criticized him for receiving 1.6 crores from the government as remuneration and said that it is peoples money. Things went out of hand and that might have forced Mohanlal to write this open letter.
The content of the letter is like this,
He says that he has survived in the movie industry for 36 years and that happened because of love and affection of Keralites. He is deeply saddened by the comments of certain people and he is aware of the things that are happening around him. He also explained why he decided to perform with Lalisom in the event. He said that Kerala government along with officials requested him to be in the prestigious National Awards. As he is always happy to do things for the government he agreed to it. He said that he never had any kind of monetary benefits from the show and the money that he demanded was to pay the artists and people who worked hard for the band. He also gave a detailed list which clearly says how the money has been spend.
What is interesting regarding this post is that he said that he will return each and every penny that he got from the government.
