The fresh face is Mamta Mohandas. Right now Mamta’s only claim to the history books is that she kissed Suresh Gopi or let’s say she is the first one who dared to do so. She is also a regular feature nowadays in gossip columns for being romantically involved with Suresh Gopi.
Mamta was launched by Hariharan in the movie Mayookham, a movie which helped no one but Mamta. Later we saw her as Mammooty’s sister in Bus Conductor. Her upcoming movies are Jayaraj’s one day wonder Adbhutham and the much awaited Lanka with Suresh Gopi.
Mamta Mohandas is an antithesis to a regular Malayali actress. She is slim, works out regularly and carries a treadmill along with her mom from set to set.
When she has the time, she loves to party and to shop. There are no restrictions on food for her, but she’s really careful about keeping fit and thin. “I carry the treadmill wherever I go and I do regular work outs. I smile, laugh and talk a lot to keep my metabolism rate high. But know something, I have been advised to put on some more weight, by some filmmakers,” she laughs. Mamta jokes that her kind of slim looks could start off a trend, “which has long been accepted everywhere else”, [Mamta Says]
We hope she would not succumb to popular demand for putting on weight and endup like Nayantara or Kavya. Mamta is also ready to do in Malayalam movies what other actresses of Malayali origin do beyond Walayar checkpost.
Originally from Kozhikode, she was brought up in Bahrain. When she started acting in movies she was a student at Mount Carmel College in Bangalore and was a model.
Mamta’s future movies are Keerthi Chakra with Mohanlal, directed by Major Ravi, and Khakhee with Prithviraj directed by Padmakumar. Another interesting upcoming movie is Rajasenan’s Madhuchandralekha where she dons a role of model opposite Jayaram.
Mamta says that she intend to act in other languages if she gets opportunities, which means we’ll have only Kavya left.
