Anchuthengu: Actor Mohanlal along with the crew of Velipadinte Pusthakam, an upcoming movie directed by Lal Jose, was in Muthalappozhi on Friday to reproduce the beauty of the place through the silver screen.

However, the first day was disappointing for the film crew as heavy rain disrupted the shooting. Mohanlal reached the spot by 5 pm.

They had to shoot the scene of playing volleyball on the shore, but had to return following incessant rain.    

Muthalappozhi is one of the less explored destinations of Kerala with high potential for tourism industry. The lack of infrastructure is the main hurdle for the place to grow into major tourist hot spot.
