Actress Malavika Mohanan is the daughter of cinematographer KU Mohanan. She hails from Payyanur in Kannur, Kerala, but brought up in Mumbai. She made her silver screen debut with the Malayalam film Pattam Pole starring Dulquer Salmaan. The film released in the year 2013. Later, she acted in Asif Ali's Nirnnayakam and the Kannada film Naanu Mattu Varalakshmi. Following a series of lead roles in Malayalam and Kannada films, she won critical acclaim after appearing in Majid Majidi's drama film, Beyond the Clouds. Her impactful performance portraying a dweller of Mumbai's dhobi ghat area in the film earned highly positive reviews. She was later seen in a brief role in Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj. Though her role in the film was very minimal, the film gave the big opportunity to act in 2020’s biggest Tamil film Master. This time playing the female lead opposite to Thalapathy Vijay. That’s a huge jump from playing a supporting role in 2019 to becoming the heroine of a superstar like Vijay. 
Vijay is more than just an actor for his hundreds of thousands of fans and has an important place in their lives. Everybody was waiting with bated breath for Thalapathy's next movie Master to hit the screens on April 9th but the outbreak of the COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus Pandemic meant that all these plans were laid to waste and the movie is yet to release. Master will surely be a huge break for Malavika Mohannan in Tamil film industry circuit. The actress then signed to play Vijay Deverakonda’s pair in a film called Hero directed by Anand Annamalai but unfortunately, this project got dropped. We are eager to know what would Malavika Mohannan’s next film be and with which star. Today, she took to her Twitter space to wish actor Dhanush on his birthday. In her tweet, she had mentioned that she is excited to work with Dhanush. Fans got excited reading the first line of the tweet thinking they are doing a film together but in brackets, she also added that she is hoping for a chance to work with him. This is what her tweet says - “Wishing you a very Happy Birthday and an amazing year ahead @dhanushkrajasir! Super excited to work with you!(hopefully someone will cast us together in a film soon)”
