'Kargil inspired me to join army' , Says Mohanlal

Mohanlal, the superstar and the one and only one complete actor of malayalam has joined the Territorial Army today . He was honoured as the Lt.Colonel by the Army General Deepak kapoor for the things he has made to convey the tough life faced by the Soldiers of Kargil and other parts of jammu and Kashmir through the movies 'KeertiChakra' and 'Kurukshetra'.

The actor joined the Territorial Army (TA), the part-time citizen's force which functions as a vital adjunct to the regular army. Mohanlal will serve the 122 Infantry Battalion (TA) of Madras Regiment or 'Kannur Terriers.' Mohanlal after joining the Army said that he was honoured to join the army and he was inspired by the Kargil and Kashmir to join the Army force.

Defence Minister A K Antony congratulated the actor on joining the army, and said that now youth will be motivated and inspired by Mohanlal's move and come forward to be part of the army. He also hoped that his joining of the armed forces would inspire people in South India to join the army in large numbers.

The Ashoka Lion and star were pinned on Mohanlal's shoulders by army chief General Deepak Kapoor at a ceremony in Delhi today. After former cricket captain Kapil Dev , Mohanlal is the second big celebrity to join the Territorial Army. The Malayalam superstar has also won National Award three-times and was given Padmashri by the government for his contribution towards Indian cinema.

The TA personnel at the time of national emergency may be called upon to become 'full-time' personnel to act in a supporting role to regular army units. At present, the TA has 42 infantry battalions.

Let's Salute our Lt.Colonel Lalettan and be proud to be a lalettan fan.....
