As Bollywood always leaves the open door for any talents, there are many actors who have risen from down South cinema and won the hearts of the audience with Hindi films. Among all of those rising talents, Malavika Mohanan stands out as the most charming and gorgeous one.

The Mollywood actor, who made her Bollywood debut in Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds in 2018 has recently been voted as one of the Top 50 Most Desirable Women. There is no doubt that her stunning beauty can sweep anyone off their feet and her personal life also leaves fans with a lot of questions. 


A Grand Debut In "Pattam Pole"

Being the daughter of cinematographer K.U. Mohanan who has worked in a lot of Bollywood films including Raees, Talaash, Don, and Fukrey, Malavika has exposed to the fascinating world since she was a kid. The actress made her Malayalam debut in Pattam Pole when she was only 20 years old.

The romantic film which tells the love story between a Christian girl and Brahmin boy also featured superstar Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role. Unfortunately, it failed to impress the audience and critics.  


Acclaimed For Her Next Film

While her Malayalam debut got an underwhelming box office collection, her following film Nirnayakam was beyond expectation. In fact, the actress brought home a special award for her outstanding performance in the movie. In addition to that, Malavika also took the spotlight for being in a lot of advertisements.

Replaced Deepika Padukone In Beyond The Clouds

Despite being a newbie in the industry, the actress has quickly made her Kannada debut and carved her niche as one of the prominent faces of the down South cinema. Just like many other South actors, she finally came across the bridge when comes to it.

In 2017, 4 years after making her first debut, Malavika broke into the Bollywood world with an Ishaan Khatter starrer Beyond the Clouds. In fact, she took the female lead which was formerly given to Deepika Padukone.

She Was Selected By Majid Majidi

According to a source, Beyond the Clouds’s director, Majid Majidi offered her the lead role in his film. The romantic drama also featured another star kid Ishaan Khatter, who is the younger brother of Shahid Kapoor, as the male lead.

Before the official release, the much-anticipated film was showcased in several film festivals. However, it seems like Malavika never gets lucky with her debut films as Beyond the Clouds was definitely a flop which only crossed Rs 2.5 core at the box office.


She Has No Problem With Getting Less Attention Than Ishan Khatter

Given the fact that her co-star Ishaan Khatter was the one who grabbed more attention, the actress said that she had no problem with it as he had what he deserved. Apart from being the brother of Shahid Kapoor, Ishaan also has a great family background and was picked by Karan Johar to play the lead role in his film Dhadak
