Malayalam actor Mohanlal has been open about being content with his weight issues and has done action-oriented films despite being overweight. However, he is playing the role of a 30-year-old guy in his upcoming film ‘Odiyan' and the actor is actually working hard to lose weight to fit into his character. If the latest reports in the media are to be believed then Mohanlal is apparently aiming to lose 15 kgs for his character in the film.

It was also rumored that Mohanlal will work with a dedicated team from France which will monitor his weight loss and guide him accordingly. The film's director VA Shrikumar recently confirmed the news and said that a 25 member team has been roped in from France which includes masseurs, ayurvedic experts, dermatologists and hardcore fitness trainers. "We have roped in an expert team, who work on Hollywood stars for their makeovers. The training regime will be those opted by athletes and sportspersons to recover their fitness after injuries. It will involve high-intensity interval training," he said.

The film's second schedule has been completed in which Mohanlal has shot his scenes playing the role of a 65 year old man. The crew has taken a 40-day break and Mohanlal is expected to transform himself within these 40 days. Fans are excited to see Mohanlal in a fit avatar and it will be an answer to the actor's critics who have pointed out Mohanlal's weight gain over the last few years.
