I think the only reason Mohanlal was not given the tag of “King of romance” was because he could handle romance as equally well as action, comedy or just about any other genre. Often film makers prefer to repeat a leading actor-actress pair especially in romantic movies as they find more success ratio when they do so. But when Mohanlal used to be in his prime years, all film makers had to do for romantic movies or scenes involving the actor was write some good lines or moments. Then they had the liberty to pick up from a large pool of actresses because this actor could make a romantic scene work most of the times on his own merit.
Here is a look at some of Mohanlal’s most memorable romantic moments and who were opposite him.
