A new teaser of Mohanlal’s much-awaited Odiyan is out and we are amazed. When the project was first announced, a sketch of Mohanlal’s proposed look was released. In a much younger, toned avatar, Mohanlal as Odiyan raised a lot of skepticism as to whether the actor would be able to pull off the look. But he is a superstar for a reason. The new teaser shows a slimmer, much younger and a formidable Mohanlal, silencing all critics in one shot. Not just Manickam, it looks like Lalettan has travelled back in time. It is tough to not be excited when Lalettan says, “Ini aanu kali!” (The game is about to begin).
Mohanlal has reportedly lost 18 kgs after being on a strict weight loss regime for about 51 days. The crew will now begin shooting the portions of younger Odiyan Manikam. He achieved his fitness goal with the help of a team of fitness experts comprising masseurs, yoga masters and dermatologists from France.
