Mohanlal was trained by a French fitness team comprising of 25 members, including doctors and physiotherapists. Interestingly, the trainers will be taking care of Mohanlal’s fitness for the next one year too, as he will be sporting a new look in Randamoozham, Shrikumar’s second film with the actor.
In a career spanning 40 years, this is the first time Mohanlal has taken up a tough groundwork. Written by National award winner Harikrishnan, Odiyan is produced by Antony Perumbavoor. Manju Warrier is the female lead in Odiyan, which will also feature Prakash Raj, Narain and many others in the supporting cast.
