It's a Lal world on canvas
(Oct 8, 2016, DG): Nijukumar Venjarammoodu may be like any other diehard fan of Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal, but his worship trudges a different path. He is an artist who has done hundreds of portraits of Kerala's dear star.

Nijukumar's early memories of Mohanlal is tied to the movie 'Kadathanadan Ambadi'. He was four years old when he watched it in theatre with parents. The Mohanlal fan in him was born right there and this fascination came out in the form of paintings.

He started out with drawing several unforgettable characters of 'Lalettan'. Later, he forayed into fantasy paintings. There were reports that Mohanlal would play Swami Vivekananda on screen. Although, that project didn't take off, the character didn't fail to take shape in Viju's mind. Lal's Vivekananda avatar took an aesthetic birth on Viju's canvas. Similarly, how would Lal look like if he plays the legendary Veluthampy Dalava or Bheema from Mahabharatha ? You just need to take a look at Viju's paintings for answers.

When 'Lalettan' praised him

Viju is elated when he describes his experience with Mohanlal. When he got a chance to meet the star of his dreams, he did not expect such kind words. "What I am doing in film field is nothing infront of you. This is real art", Lal said. The star also introduced him to many in the industry. Some of his paintings are displayed in the art gallery of Mohanlal's Vismaya Max studio.

Dreams never end

The talented artist's dreams don't end there. " I would love to do actor Kamal Haasan's portrait paintings. Singer KS Chithra's painting is another dream", he says. " An exhibition which includes paintings of many Indian celebrities is my ultimate aim", he adds.
