Mohanlal to shed around 15 kgs for his boxing film with Priyadarshan
It has been a while since reports emerged that Mohanlal and director Priyadarshan are coming together for a new boxing film. The actor-director combo has already worked together in 29 films and many of them have turned out to be memorable. This is their first attempt in doing a sports film and expectations are naturally high.
In a recent interview, Priyadarshan revealed that Mohanlal will be going through a major physical transformation for this film. He will be shedding close to 15 kgs and then put on weight as the character demands it. According to Priyadarshan, it is the story of a boxer, his rise to fame and then his fall.
The veteran director who has always been fascinated by Martin Scorsese’s 1980-released classic ‘Raging Bull’ says that this new film will be our own ‘Raging Bull’. More details regarding when the makers are planning to begin shoot are not yet known.
