Speaking about preparing for his role in Odiyan, Mohanlal had recently said, "The film goes through two different ages – one in the present and another 30 years ago. As a person gets old, he puts on weight and that is perhaps the biggest challenge for me in Odiyan. And doesn’t matter even if I have to starve, I will prepare for it in the best possible way."
Odiyan is a fantasy thriller and is based on the lives of the last surviving member Manickyan from Palakkad region in Kerala. Odiyan is directed by VA Shrikumar Menon and produced by Antony Perumbavoor who is a very old associate of Mohanlal. The shooting of Odiyan has been wrapped up and the film is currently in post production stage.
