Malavika Mohanan

By: George A

MALAVIKA MOHANAN has rapidly become one of the most in-demand actresses in South India. With a string of successful projects and collaborations with big stars like Rajinikanth, Thalapathy Vijay, and Dhanush, the 30 year old has proven herself to be a bankable sensation. 

 At first, this Malayalam actress had ambitions of pursuing a career as a cinematographer or director, inspired by her famous father KU Mohanan. But destiny steered her towards acting when she landed a role opposite Dulquer Salmaan in Pattam Pole (2013), after meeting his legendary father Mammootty during a shoot. 

 She commenced her acting career at the age of 20 and has come a long way since that impressive debut. Let’s delve into Malavika’s incredible journey and explore the intriguing aspects of her career and stardom.  

Acting: After a solid start in Malayalam and Kannada cinema, Malavika showcased her exceptional acting ability in Beyond The Clouds (2017) through her portrayal of Tara. The gifted actress effortlessly stood out with every emotion she expressed, making it hard to believe she was a newcomer to Hindi cinema. International director Majid Majidi showed off her acting potential and put her on the radar of major film banners. It would only be a matter of time before she landed the right movies to showcase her abilities. Performances like that and in subsequent films demonstrate that any criticism towards her acting prowess is unwarranted and unjust. Her forthcoming releases will further showcase that remarkable talent. 

Stardom: The firebrand has carved out a place for herself in the male-dominated movie industry with a fierce determination and shown quite comprehensively that she is here for the long run. Over the past decade Malavika has only grown stronger and become a household name in South India. She enjoys a considerable fan base, much like her male counterparts. Her career skyrocketed after she starred in two record-breaking films opposite Tamil superstars Rajinikanth and Vijay, respectively. If she continues to select good scripts and strong roles, her ascension to superstardom is inevitable. 

 Fashion: One cannot overlook the contribution of Malavika’s stunning looks and enchanting personality. Her magnetic presence on screen and distinct fashion choices have set her apart from contemporaries. As soon as she posts photos online, everyone starts talking about her on all social media platforms and copying her style. She sets fashion goals regularly.  


Selective: Concentrating on quality has served Malavika well. She has turned down several projects in Telugu and Hindi as the roles offered limited her to just glamour, without any substantial scope for performance. By choosing projects that feature strong female leads, she has shown there is a lot more to her than just glamor. She plays an important role in forthcoming Pa Ranjith-directorial . Thanagalaan With this project, she will likely prove herself as a versatile actress who can take on any kind of role. She also has major Hindi and Telugu films in the pipeline. It has been reported that she will be portraying the female lead in Telugu movie The Raja Saab alongside pan-India superstar Prabhas. 

 Troll slayer: Actresses regularly endures misogynistic trolling online. However, whenever Malavika finds herself at the receiving end of such sexism, she refuses to be silenced. Whether it’s a troll about her outfits or acting, you can count on the fierce star to be equipped with a clever and sassy response. One time, she noticed something unfair in a fan-made poster on X (formerly Twitter). The poster about Master (2021) showed all the guys having a good time and had her doing the cooking. She spoke up about that stereotypical attitude and received support. Those who closely follow her social media timeline and interviews, will know she is a passionate advocate for women’s rights. It all adds to why she is so special.
