Mownika’s care towards bedridden Balu Mahendra
May 14, 2006
Balu Mehendra
Some relationships are looked down on moral grounds and especially if they involve film personalities they acquire wider publicity. But, as time passes by people just forget about them. Take the case of ace cinematographer cum director, Balu Mahendra. The man who gave us beautiful films like Moodupani, Moonram Pirai, Veedu and comedies like Rettai Vaal Kuruvi and Raman Abdullah has not been quite lucky with box office success of late.
His recent films like Julie Ganapathy and Adhu Oru Kanakkalam flopped miserably. He has come down with cardiac and renal complications.
For nearly a decade now, Balu had been living with TV actress Mownika following differences with his wife. Several attempts to patch up things by many of his well wishers including his protégés like Bala and Amir have not borne fruit. While everyone predicted that Mownika would leave him in despair at his hour of crisis, the lady stood by him with courage and is nursing him with tender care. She has cut down on her busy television commitments just to be by his side.
She does not mind spending all her money to ensure that the bedridden Balu is back to what he does best – capture poetry on camera.

That looks straight out of a Balu Mahendra film, doesn’t it? Inexplicable emotions ruling over social mores.
