'Crazy' was an epithet added to his name after his hugely successful play Crazy Thieves in Palavakkam, which was also developed as a television series later.

The veteran's death shook theatre as well as film personalities, especially in South India. Mohan's last credit remains as a writer for Prabhu Deva and Tamannaah Bhatia's Devi 2.
