‘Lijo said it would be better if it was shown as if it were cut, but Mammootty said he would not cut any eyes’; Shooting video of Nanpakal
Mammootty’s company released the shooting videos of Mayakam early in the morning. The video has a scene revealing Sundaram. The video also has a few more takes to capture the scene. This is the only close-up shot in the film.
In the video, Mammootty is patiently trying to fix the shot and Lijoy is explaining things. Mammootty has been asked in many interviews how Lijo describes the shot to Mammootty. Even if the take is okay, Lijo is making him do it again because he can do better with Mammootty.
Mammootty makes jokes while Lijo says something in between. When Lijo says that it would be better if the eyes are cut, Mammootty says that no eyes are cut.
