Mohanlal is one of the most popular actors in Malayalam film industry. He is one of the biggest names in the Malayalam movie industry and is known for the roles that he has played in many movies. Unlike Mammootty, Mohanlal is not a big-time car enthusiast. He does have a good collection of luxury cars and SUVs but, it is not as varied as Mammootty’s car collection. Like many leading actors from the industry, Mohanlal also recently bought a new caravan or vanity van. The images and video of his new caravan has surfaced online and here we have a video that shows the vanity van inside out.
The video has been uploaded by Aashirvad Cinemas which is a production house that exclusively produces films starring Mohanlal. The actor has used several caravans in the past to shuttle from one movie location to the other. The work on this caravan has been done by OJES automobiles. They are one of the leading garages in Kerala that makes special purpose vehicles and caravans. They have prepared caravans for many celebrities in the past. The vanity van seen here in the video is actually based on Bharat Benz’s 1017 series bus chassis.

The exterior of the bus has been customised to meet the purpose. The body as well as the interiors of the vanity van are custom made. It gets projector LED headlamps, Mercedes logo, large driver window and a brown exterior paint with graphics on it. Mohanlal is often addressed as Lal and the letter L is also included as part of the body graphics. Just like the exterior, interior of this vanity van is also finished in brown and beige finish. It is filled with features that is meant to provide utmost comfort to the passenger.
In the video, Mohanlal can be seen exploring the interiors of his new caravan. The video shows a proper living space with a large LED television screen which folds under the cabinet. The roof is completely custom made and there are Rolls Royce like starlight roof. It is actually not a roof line but a false roof with LED lights installed under it. There are reading lamps and other lights to give the cabin an airy feel. Just next to the television is a small refrigerator. According to reports, the vanity van also has a kitchen, bedroom and also a washroom. The video however does not show them all. The windows are all sealed as it is a fully airconditioned cabin.
The window shades are finished in brown shade and they are probably automatic. Mohanlal took the delivery of his new caravan in October this year.
