B Unnikrishnan shares how Villain’s editor was floored by Mohanlal’s performance
On Mohanlal’s 57th birthday, wishes from fans and colleagues keep pouring in from all parts of the world. Director B Unnikrishnan, with whom Mohanlal was working till recently for their upcoming movie Villain, in his Facebook page has written an interesting piece about shooting a particular scene in the movie.
They were filming an important scene featuring Mohanlal and Siddique. It was a very intense scene where Siddique delivers the dialogues and Mohanlal had to just react by looking down. At the end of delivering the dialogue, director B Unnikrishnan had asked Mohanlal to look up at Siddique. Mohanlal suggested that it will be even more intense if he keeps looking down. The director agreed as he trusted the instincts of the great actor.
Recently, while editing the scene, Unnikrishnan was dumbstruck by how great that scene eventually turned out to be. Without knowing all this, editor Shameer Mohammed exclaimed how terrifically Mohanlal has acted in this scene.
Villain is a crime thriller in which Mohanlal is playing the role of Mathew Manjooran, an ex-cop. Manju Warrier will be seen as his wife while Vishal, Hansika Motwani, Srikanth and Raashi Khanna are also playing pivotal roles. The team is currently on a break after completing the first two schedules. The final leg of shooting will commence by June first week.
