Secrete sauce about body transformation of Mohanlal for PULIMURUGAN
Mohanlal in undoubtedly the biggest superstar in the Malayalam film industry. His film career itself spans a whopping 31 years and the actor himself is about to turn 57 within the next ten days. But for Lalettan, age is just a number and laws of physics are merely a suggestion! Don’t believe us? The 57 year old veteran actor had to undergo a strenuous training session to get into the skin of ‘Murugan’, the adventurous wild hunter in Pulimurugan.
Mohanlal started working out to transform his body on February 14, 2015, which went on for another nine months. These exercises were aimed at building strength along with endurance, balance and flexibility. A combination of strength training and cardio were used.
