According to a leading daily, the makers of Mohanlal’s ‘Odiyan’ are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the veteran actor does complete justice to the younger version of his character in the highly ambitious film. The makers have apparently roped in a 25-member team from France to help the much-loved superstar attain the desired look. Confirming this, director VA Shrikumar said that they want the star to have a vibrant look at the end of the fitness regime.
“As part of the 25-member team from France, there will be masseurs, ayurvedic experts, dermatologists and hardcore fitness trainers. It’s also the first time such a team is brought in for an actor’s makeover in Malayalam cinema as we want Lalettan to have a refreshed look once the regime is over,” he added.
He also revealed that Mohanlal would need nearly 40 days in order to shed the extra kilos and get into shape. In case you did not know, ‘Odiyan’ is touted to be a supernatural-thriller and will see ‘Lalettan’ play the role of a member of the mystical Odiyan community. During some scenes, he will be seen as a 30-year-old. Besides Mohanlal, the film also stars Manju Warrier and the versatile Prakash Raj in the lead. If all goes as planned, the film will hit screens in 2018.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Mohanlal. Besides ‘Odiyan’, he also has a film with veteran director Priyadarshan in his kitty. So, are you excited about ‘Odiyan’? Tell us in the space below.
