Thiruvananthapuram: Actor Mohanlal will not contest in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, said actor-director and a close friend of the latter, Major Ravi.
Earlier there were speculations that RSS is seriously considering to field Mohanlal in the Thiruvananthapuram seat in the elections. BJP MLA O Rajagopal had confirmed this.
The other names surfacing for this seat were Kummanam Rajasekaran and K Surendran.
“He will not stand for any elections. When asked him about the rumours the other day during a phone call, he laughed it off. The Mohanlal I know, as on today, he will not stand for any elections,” Ravi told Mathrubhumi News.
Cinema is more suitable for Mohanlal. It would be impossible to find an actor as him again. But it would be possible to make a politician like him, Ravi said when asked which field would be, more suitable for Mohanlal, quoted Mathrubhumi.
