Mohanlal has a slew of interesting films lined up this year which includes a period film Odiyan which will have the veteran actor playing a fierce role. Mohanlal would be seen playing a role called Manickan which will be based on the last surviving member of tribal community in the Palakkad region. Odiyan is being directed by VA Shrikumar Menon and produced by Antony Perumbavoor who is a very old friend of Mohanlal. The shooting of Odiyan is now wrapped up and the film will now move to post production stage. Mohanlal took to his social networking pages and posted a picture with the cast and crew of Odiyan confirming the wrap of the shooting. “And it’s a wrap for #Odiyan! It’s been a meaningful journey of 123 days with our big family. Thank you for all the love , relentless support and wishes !” wrote Mohanlal on his Twitter page posting a picture.

Mohanlal seems to have put in a lot of effort to get into that shape for his role in Odiyan and the results are visible too which one can see in the recently released teaser. In such a lean and never-seen-before look, Mohanlal is set to enthrall his fans with Odiyan. Mohanlal’s makeover in Odiyan has sent his fans into a frenzy and the response to his new lean look is quite overwhelming. Odiyan was a tribal community in the Palakkad-Malabar region and is known for scaring people in order to make a living.
Speaking about preparing for his role in Odiyan, Mohanlal had recently said that he would do whatever it takes to get into the shape of the role. “The film goes through two different ages – one in the present and another 30 years ago. As a person gets old, he puts on weight and that is perhaps the biggest challenge for me in Odiyan. And doesn’t matter even if I have to starve, I will prepare for it in the best possible way,” Mohanlal had said.
