Dubai: Malayalee matinee idol Mohan Lal on Wednesday got his UAE driving licence, proving that his skills behind the wheel are as good as his acting prowess. 

Lal cleared the driving test on his first try.

“Mohan Lal holds an Indian license since 1983 so he just had to take the regular 20 classes to appear for his first license test. It took him one attempt,” said El Fateh Abdul Baqi Eljack, General Manager of Dubai Driving Center.

Mohan Lal, 50, shuttles between Kerala and Dubai on a regular basis and considers Dubai his second home. He is currently shooting for the film Casanova in Dubai. 

Lalettan, as he is fondly called by his fans, has acted in over 300 films and has enjoyed a three-decade reign in the entertainment industry.
