Mohanlal takes the fitness challenge, wows his fans with his all new fit avatar.

Actor Mohanlal joined the list of actors who accepted Union minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s fitness challenge on Wednesday. The actor, who recently lost weight for a film, shared a photo lifting weights and, in turn, nominated his Janatha Garage co-star Jr NTR, actors Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suriya. While Prithviraj will be directing Mohanlal soon, Suriya is Mohanlal’s co-star in an an upcoming untitled Tamil film directed by KV Anand.

Mohanlal, however, has been a fitness enthusiast for a while now. He lost 18 kg for his role in upcoming film Odiyan and has been sharing inspiring pictures since. He plays three different characters in the film, and it is to play one of the characters that the actor went in for the physical transformation.

He succeeded in acquiring the required look after following a strict diet and rigorous workout regime.

When a film based on the Malayalam novel Randamoozham was announced, with an ambitious budget of Rs 1000 crore, many had trolled Mohanlal stating he was not physically fit to play the role of Bhima. The actor has proved his detractors wrong with his fitness regime.

On the work front, Mohanlal is looking forward to the release of the film Neerali, which also stars actor Nadhiya. Odiyan, directed by VA Shrikumar Menon, is slated to release in October. The actor will also be seen playing a pivotal role in Nivin Pauly’s Kayamkulam Kochunni.
