After actor Suresh Gopi heaping praises on Prime Minister Modi time and again, it's now actor Mohanlal's turn. On his blog, the Malayalam superstar has written in detail about his thoughts on the Prime Minister's Teachers' day address. 

Mohanlal writes that on Teachers' day he watched PM Modi talking to lakhs of school children across the country and he liked one question that a child asked Modi. "The child had asked Modi if he had ever thought he would become the Prime Minister, to which Modi replied that he never dreamt of it. You should not be dreaming of becoming someone, but should dream of doing something sincerely," Mohanlal writes.

The actor says he thought a lot about the PM's reply and apparently felt this was the best advise for a generation that is encouraged to do anything to achieve success. He then laments about the state of people in Kerala who have to travel on roads that have only potholes or have to wait at government offices for endless hours to get a file sanctioned. Mohanlal says he believes the Prime Minister's advise to be sincere to one's job is much needed for the upcoming generation. As only a generation aware of its duties can save Kerala's society from sinking.
