The cast and crew of Malaikottai Vaaliban have been shooting in Rajasthan for several weeks now. While they seem to be working non-stop to complete the project on time, they are also not forgetting to have fun there. The latest picture of director Lijo Jose Pellissery, Mohanlal and Danish Sait and others feating together has gone viral on social media. The selfie was taken by Lijo, and the picture captured the jubilant mood around the table.
The shooting of Malaikottai Vaaliban has been going on since January this year . Perhaps, this film might be the longest shot film in Lijo's career. Lijo is known for completing his movie in a matter of weeks. For example, his breakout movie Jallikattu, which was India's official entry to the Oscars in 2021, was shot in about 39 days.

Malaikottai Vaaliban seems to be bigger in both its scale and ambition. And Mohanlal is also going the extra mile to ensure the success of the movie. According to reports, Mohanlal plays the role of a wrestler in the movie. And to look the part, he has been sweating it out at the gym. Even on the shoot days, he doesn't seem to miss out on workouts. The 62-year-old star has gained a lot of muscles for this movie, which is very apparent from his latest photos.
Malaikottai Vaaliban is expected to give a much-needed break to Mohanlal. His career had hit a slump as his last few movies were both commercial and critical disasters. And the fans are hopeful that this movie would end Mohanlal's losing streak.
Lijo is basking in the critical success of Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam. Starring superstar Mammootty in the lead role, this film was inspired by an old advertisement. The movie went on to achieve great critical success across the world.
