We don’t know if the world is ready for this yet: Malayalam cinema’s top actor Mohanlal will dance to the tunes of South Korean pop idol Psy’s Gangnam style this Friday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. You read that right.

The actor -- who’s busy rehearsing in Kochi -- even posted a FB update with: “Now dancing to the tunes of the famous PSY’s Gangnam Style at AMMA’s Rehearsal Camp and guys I’m really enjoying this :). Oppan Gangnam style :D”.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

More than 80 stars from the Malayalam film fraternity inlcluding Mammootty, Prithviraj, Indrajit, Bhavna and Meera Jasmine will converge at Sharjah Cricket Stadium to put together a song and dance spectacle. Unlike an awards show with tedious thank-you speeches, the organisers claim it’s going to be four-and-a-half-hours of non-stop entertainment from Malayalam’s top stars.

The proceeds from the show, entitled Mazhavillazhakil AMMA (Association of Malayalam Movie Artists), will go towards helping members of their Malayalam film fraternity. The gates to the show at Sharjah Cricket Stadium open at 7pm and the tickets are available for Dh1,000, Dh750, Dh500, Dh200, Dh75, Dh50 and Dh25. The show will be telecast on Malayalam channel Manorama International at the end of the month. For details, contact 050-3453029.
