Even amidst mounting protests, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move has found many takers, with South Indian superstar Mohanlal the latest to join the supporting chorus.

In his latest blog-post on Monday, Mohanlal appealed to the people to set aside their temporary difficulties and appreciate the move that is all set to serve a larger cause. 

The actor -who is currently in Jaipur for the shoot of his upcoming film directed by Major Ravi- describes the PM’s speech on demonetization as a surgical strike that was carried out with utmost sincerity and dedication. 

“I believe that his speech contained elements that proves that he has thoroughly studied the issues faced by the country. I heard our PM say that this was a surgical strike against black money. I am not someone who worships an individual, but I do respect sincere ideas,” he writes.

Mohanlal terms the initial difficulties posed by the move as temporary ones that can be justified with the larger good it will lead to. He cautioned his readers to not treat his words as that of a financial expert, but as from a common man unclouded by prejudice.

He reiterated that the goal justifies the path taken to achieve it. The actor goes on to elaborate on the circumstances that make people part of a corrupt public system. 

“Only the courageous ones are able to withstand the pressure. But such people are often isolated and ridiculed in our society. This should change. So despite the hardships, I welcome this move….which I am sure would not have been taken without considering the possibility of hardships….We so patiently queue outside liquor outlets, cinema halls and various religious places….Whenever I get the chance, I too wait in the queue to get things done, be it in Kerala, India or abroad.” 

“Life is not something that is constant…sometimes the pace may slow down, at times, the colors may not be all that bright. But if difficulties faced are for something that we love or care for, these no longer pose a problem….that is when sorrow becomes sweet,” he concludes.
