Mohanlal’s Controversies

Band controversy

Lalisom - The Lal Effect is a musical group that was founded in 2014 by Mohanlal and guitarist Ratheesh Vegha. The band received criticism on social media for lip-syncing after initially charging a fee of 1.63 crore.

 Following the criticism Mohanlal returned the money to the government but they refused claiming that their morality forbade them from doing so and that Mohanlal had not personally benefited from the money since it was intended to pay for the performers' stage costs and compensation. Despite this Mohanlal chose not to retrieve the funds he sent.

Singing Controversy

When Mohanlal claimed to have performed the song Mathalathenunnan from the movie Uyarum Njaan Naadake he sparked a debate. Soon after VT Murali who actually sang the song criticised Mohanlal for claiming credit for it. Mohanlal apologised for any confusion and clarified that his only intention was to imply that the song was from his film and that he lip-synced it.

Obscene Gesture

A video of Mohanlal making an offensive gesture was trending online. The Mollywood celebrity is seen in the video admiring Shruti Haasan's dance performance before reportedly making an offensive gesture. The actor received a lot of backlash as a result of the video's widespread distribution on Facebook and YouTube. Both Mammootty and Siddique can be seen chuckling while Mohanlal does the action. After viewing the video on Facebook many people have been criticizing Mohanlal for acting in such a way in public. But the Mohanlal and Shruti Hassan video that has gone viral on social media has been edited. The clips are skillfully combined to give the impression that they occurred simultaneously while in reality they are all from separate incidents that occurred at various periods.

Mohanlal’s Net Worth

Mohanlal’s net worth in 2022 is $50 million US or 399 Crore Indian Rupees. His annual salary is $5 million as of 2022 according to a number of reports. He earns the majority of his money through his acting work songs endorsements and other brand-related activities. He charges between Rs. 10 and 15 crores for every film. Some of the cars owned by Mohanlal are Toyota Vellfire Toyota Land Cruiser Mercedes Benz GL350 and Lamborghini Urus.

Mohanlal has founded and collaborated on a number of businesses in the fields of packaged spices restaurants and film distribution among others. In the 1980s he shared ownership of the production business Casino with Mammootty I.V. Sasi Seema and Century Kochumon. The production company turned out pictures that were lucrative economically. Maxlab Cinemas and Entertainments a business that distributes movies is owned by him. 

He founded Vismayas Max a Trivandrum-based pre- and post-production studio for movies as well as a college for dubbing actors at the city's KINFRA Film and Video Park. Later Sohan Roy of the Aries Group now known as Aries Vismayas Max took over the company's management. The company's current brand ambassador is Mohanlal. He has worked as a producer for the company Pranavam Arts International.

Mohanlal owns eateries both in India and abroad including the 2002-founded Mohanlal's Tastebuds chain in Dubai and the same-named Middle Eastern brand of spices pickles sauces and curry powder. The Eastern Group has owned the bulk of the trademark since 2007. He opened The Harbour Market a seafood restaurant in Bangalore and Travancore Court a hotel in Ernakulam both in 2006. Among his other business endeavours is Uniroyal Marine Exports Limited a seafood export business with its headquarters in Kozhikode where he has served as a non-executive director since 1992. 

He is a co-founder partner and chairman of the Jose Thomas Performing Arts Centre (JTPac) a performing arts and music centre founded in 2009 in Thrippunithura Kochi. He serves as a director wholly independent of Clenergen India Private Limited which manufactures and supplies biomass feedstock for biomass gasification.
