Saturday, September 9, 2017 • Malayalam Comments

As reported earlier, Mohanlal will be shedding close to 15 kilos to get into the skin of his character Manikyan in the upcoming ambitious project Odiyan. While the shooting of the movie has already started with his current look, the actor will be sporting a much leaner avatar for another part of the film. And for that Mohanlal is willing to go to any lengths, he says. The actor is reported to have stated that he will go to any extent to lose weight, even if he has to starve! This will be the first time, Mohanlal will be undergoing a drastic makeover for a film after so many years.

In the movie, Mohanlal plays the last surviving member of a tribal community called Odiyan in Kerala. Mohanlal will be seen in the role of Manikyan, a man who is mastered in Odividya and will be featured in the age of 30 to 65 in multiple looks.

'Odiyan' will have Manju Warrier in the female lead along with Prakash Raj and Sathyaraj in important roles. While art director Prasanth Madhav will also be recreating Thenkurissi village for the shooting, renowned fight-master Peter Hein will be choreographing the action sequences. The movie's shoot is progressing at a brisk pace.
