Mohanlal added that his meeting with the Prime Minister took place on the actor's request.
"I got permission to meet him because I requested for a prior appointment. Surprisingly, he himself came to welcome me. He hugged me saying, 'Mohanlal ji.' He patted on my shoulders thrice. He knew me," wrote the Malayalam film actor.
