A daily wage labourer by profession, Mammikka, a native of Kodivalli, Vennakadu is rocking social media with his breath-taking makeover
A 60-year-old daily wage labourer from Kerala has become an overnight sensation after a makeover and professional photographs turned him into a model.
Mammikka, a native of Kodivalli, Vennakadu has become famous on social media and his hometown after a video of his transformation from a labourer to a model was shared widely on social media.
The video starts with the elderly man walking in an old lungi and a faded shirt before his transformation begins. A beard trim, a haircut and several other salon treatments later, Mammikka was all set to shop for his photoshoot. The video ends with the man happily posing for pictures in his all new look.
It all started when photographer Shareek Vayalil spotted him and, due to his resemblance to actor Vinayakan, posted his photo on Facebook. A wedding suit photoshoot was coming up soon and Vayalil had already found his model in Mammikka.
Dressed in a suit, tie and sunglasses, Mammikka posed with an iPad in his hand for the shoot. In another photo, Mammikka was dressed in a Jodhpuri suit, a turban, ethnic jewellery and sunglasses. He also had a mini-sword in his hand as he posed for the camera with a straight look on his face.
