Unni Mukundan trains hard for his character Chandroth Panicker in Maamaankam
Shoot for ‘Maamaankam’ is currently progressing at a brisk pace. The movie which is currently directed by M Padmakumar has Mammootty playing the lead role of a fiery ‘Chaaver’ (warrior). The story revolves around the life of warriors who plot to defeat the Zamorin rulers. Unni Mukundan is also playing a prominent role in the movie. The actor has put in a lot of efforts for playing his character Chandroth Panciker. He recently took to his social media handle to share photos from his work out session and also wrote a note thanking all his trainers.
Unni Mukundan’s post reads,
What your mind wants, your body gets and this rule applies for everything you AIM for!
Thank you for receiving Marco Jr with so much love and warmth. Truly humbled by the responses. Since the past few weeks, I have been rigorously training and shooting for ‘Maamaankam’, one of the most anticipated projects where I get to share screen space with Mammokka (@mammootty ) , the man himself! It has been a tough one, considering the challenges and requirements ‘Chandroth Panicker’, throws at me, every day has been that one step forward towards achieving the desired transformation not just mentally, but also physically. I have always believed that while the character itself challenges the actor in you, its also imperative to change your physique that matches the soul and the essence of the character you get to portray on screen. The journey from being Marco Jr to Chandroth Panicker has been quite a learning experience for me and as shoot progresses and while I am still at it, I wanted to share my journey with you all and thank these amazing people, my awesome trainers, Johson AP, Prajith and Sarath Rajesekhar, who have been helping me shape Panicker with the kind of finesse, perfection and commitment that I want to give it to him. They are indeed those go to resources we all need in our lives. @johnson.ap.7 @sarath_rajsekhar @prajithknr
Stay focused, stay healthy… Dream It… AIM It… Get It!
