However, on Sunday, July 2, the makers revealed a new different look of Mohanlal from the film, which has now gone viral.

The Malayalam actor is seen in an interesting look which is almost similar to his Pulimurugan look, sporting a thick twirled moustache. Also, the new look features the actor donning kalabha/bhasma on his forehead, which seems to be prominent considering Mohanlal portrays a Christian character in Velipadinte Pusthakam.
