Mohanlal commented that his one side hanging shoulder is a ‘manufacturing defect’. During an interview for the promotion of ‘Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham’, Mohanlal commented that his most praised feature, the hanging shoulder, is hereditary and sees it as a trait. His mother, grandfather also have such a bend over the shoulder.
Director Priyadarshan supported it by saying that this bend is there since they both know each other. Priyadarshan also said that considering this hanged shoulder, he has written the six-line description about Marakkar in the movie. Everyone has body language. Mammootty, Mohanlal, Amitabh Bachchan or anyone has a unique feature just like their voice, modulation or gestures.
