Ay Mudavanmugal in Thiruvananthapuram, there was a mango tree that leaned towards the road side. Two children aimed at mangoes on the tree. One was Mohanlal, the other one was Hari. The former got a bunch of mangoes while the latter got only one mangoes.

Hearing the commotion, somebody from inside shouted ‘Who the hell is that…”. Pocketing the mangoes, the chaps took to their heels.
