Mohanlal started hitting his gym regularly several months ago as he had to shed a lot of weight to play the younger version of his role in his upcoming film Odiyan. With the team of international fitness experts, he lost a massive 18 kgs in about 51 days. Odiyan director MA Shrikumar Menon said Mohanlal will continue to work on his fitness as he prepares to play Bheema in mega-project, titled The Mahabharata/ Randamoozham.
In the meantime, Mohanlal is waiting for the release of his upcoming action flick Nerali, which is helmed by filmmaker Ajoy Varma. The film also stars Parvatii Nair, Nadhiya, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Dileesh Potham among others. It is expected to hit the screens in the second week of June. Mohanlal is also preparing to host the Bigg Boss show in Malayalam.
