"Took me 11 months to prepare for Chandroth Panicker, to be the Man that He Was, physically and emotionally! And that's done and dusted, a thing of the past now ! Thanks u for loving him !! However, since the last 4 months, I have been busy letting all the muscles go by, as you can see, I have my neat kudavayaru. This transformation is for my next Movie, Meppadiyan. Jayakrishnan is a very normal guy. The look will be justified while you watch the film. Expecting your support. And, Letting each one of you know that the movie has no action sequences. It's a movie for the youth and the family alike. Keep me in your prayers !," Unni Mukundan has penned in a long note that he sent out recently.
