Mohanlal to shed 15 kilos to turn a boxer!

Thursday, July 29, 2021 • Malayalam Comments

There have been several reports doing the rounds that Mollywood's superhit combo Mohanlal-Priyadarshan is reuniting for a new sports movie that is set in the backdrop of boxing. While the makers of the movie are yet to make an official announcement on the project, Priyadarshan had recently spilled the beans on the project in an interview. In a recent interview, Priyadarshan revealed that Mohanlal will be going through a major physical transformation for the film. The Mollywood superstar will be shedding close to 15 kgs to get into the shoes of the boxer avatar in the film.

According to Priyadarshan, it is the story of a boxer, his rise to fame, and then his fall. "Mohanlal and I have done all kinds of films together. But we have never done a sports film. I have always been fascinated by Scorsese’s Raging Bull. So you could say this would be our Raging Bull,” he was quoted as saying. To portray two different timelines of the character, Mohanlal will also put on weight for his aging boxer avatar. More details to follow!

The actor-director combo has worked together in 29 films and many of them have turned out to be classic evergreen and memorable. This is the duo's first attempt at doing a sports film and expectations are naturally high. Meanwhile, among other projects, Mohanlal will soon be seen in films such as B. Unnikrishnan's Aaraatu and Prithviraj Sukumaran's Bro Daddy. He is also collaborating again with Drishyam’s director Jeethu Joseph for 12th Man.
