A huge party was thrown by the crew of Malaikottai Vaaliban on the last day shoot of the film. The highlight of the video that’s currently going viral on social media has to be Mohanlal talking about the film. Mohanlal says the film is nothing like you have ever seen in Indian cinema and will be very different. He also thanked Lijo for considering him to play a part in the film.

“We are still trying to figure out Lijo Jose Pellissery. Why should we know him? He should be knowing us. I am hoping that this will be one of his greatest films. The shooting was unbelievable. Because of the unpredictable weather, we had to go through some tough times. Somehow we managed to overcome that. I think the matter of a film working at the box office comes later. We have created something we have never seen before. This will be a different film. Thank you for considering me for this film,” said Mohanlal.

'Malaikottai Vaaliban' was wrapped up on June 13th. Lijo Pellissery made it a point to thank everyone associated with the film. The last schedule of the film was in Chennai.
