Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal meets PM Modi; sparks rumours of joining BJP

New Delhi | Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday has given birth to rumours of the South Indian star joining the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and contesting the upcoming parliamentary elections.

Mohanlal after the meeting tweeted, “It has been a privilege to meet our Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this auspicious day of Janmashtami. Briefed him about Vishwa Santhi Foundation and our multifaceted social initiatives.”


Mohanlal further added that PM Modi has assured all support and offered to participate in the Global Malayalee Round table that can formulate futuristic solutions for a New Kerala. PMO India has also appreciated our vision to set up a Cancer Care Centre to cater to the needs of the under-privileged.


According to media reports, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sang (RSS) the political ideologue of the BJP wants Mohanlal to contest from Kerala where the saffron party has a limited presence in the Left-ruled state. Rumours further added that RSS wants Mohanlal to contest against Congress leader Shashi Tharoor from the Thiruvananthapuram constituency.

The Malayalam Superstar’s closeness with BJP can be measured as earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Mohanlal to be part of the central government’s ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ movement. While in 2016, Mohanlal supported PM Modi’s step of demonetisation.
