In his preparation for his role in Aadhi, Pranav Mohanlal had to learn Parkour, an intensive training routine that is developed from the military obstacle course training. Pranav is well-versed in guitar. In fact, Aadhi also marked Pranav's debut as a songwriter and singer. Though Aadhi marks his debut as a leading man, Pranav is no stranger to cinema and acting. In fact, he won a Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artist way back in 2002 - an honour he received when he was just 12 for his performance in 'Punarjani'.
Those who are close to Pranav endearingly call him Appu.
