A lowdown on what's happening in the Malayalam film industry.

Mohanlal

Malayalam superstar Mohanlal's blogs on various issues have, of late, become a major talking point in Kerala.

The latest from him is his take on a photo-feature in the Mathrubhoomi daily showing some Adivasi children eating waste as food.

"After seeing the photo, I felt terribly disturbed. I have interacted closely with Adivasi groups, especially during the shooting of my films like Uyarum Njan Naadake and Kalapani," Mohanlal says.

"How much money have we spent for the benefit of the suffering groups? Still, why are they forced to feed on our waste? We should have this photo of those poor kids having waste as food, in our dining rooms. When we waste food, this picture should act as a shock treatment for us. We are busy in our own world. I am sharing the responsibility for this sin, as a human being and as a fellow Malayali," he adds.
