Mohanlal takes to Fb to trace child artiste in his first film

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Actor Mohanlal’s first film was Thiranottam. It happened 36 years ago. When he celebrated the completion of 36 years of his acting career yesterday, he said he is in the grip of a strange kind of wish.

To announce this, Mohanlal took to Facebook. He said on his post that he was in search of the child artiste who had acted with him in his first film. The character’s name was Unnikunju.

Ever since the shooting of the film, the star has not seen him. Later, he searched a lot for him, called up Thiranottam cast and crew members to enquire about him, but there was no clue at all.

“1978 September 3 – This day I won’t be able to forget... Life’s biggest turning point happened on this day. I got a new friend – Movie camera. Long 36 years…. Thanks to all for your love, trust and blessings. On this occasion I would like to share one of my yearnings with you. Please help me find the boy who acted with me in my first shoot (video attached)... in case you identify him….,”  thus goes his Fb post. (The post is in Malayalam).

Govt recommends CBI inquiry into Manoj murder case

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala has said that the government will recommend to the Centre to transfer Manoj murder case to the CBI. The new decision was taken after the DGP also made suggestion to the government to hand over the case to the CBI.
“Once a case is registered under UAPA act, the matter should be reported to the Centre within 15 days. It was under this circumstance that the government decided to recommend for the CBI inquiry. The BJP had also asked for a CBI inquiry into the case. The Crime Branch will continue investigation until the CBI takes over the case,”

Chennithala said the aim of the government is to bring all the culprits before the law. “The murder is not seen through any political angle. In Kannur both BJP and CPM have indulged in killing their political rivals. In the FIR registered in Manoj murder case, there are names of CPM activists.”    

In answer to a question, he said the UAPA law had been implied in Kerala before also.

Chennithala added that there was no chance for liquor tragedy and the government was ready to face any eventuality.
