A 60-year-old Kerala daily wage laborer turns model in photoshoot gone viral

Mammikka from Vennakadu, Kerala, is a daily wage worker who was approached by an ad agency to do a photoshoot. He was photographed by Shareek Vayalil, who first uploaded the photos from the shoot on his Instagram page.

The transformation soon went viral and was reshared thousands of times, positioning the 60-year old in a spot of having the potential of a completely different career. For his friends in Vennakad in Kozhikode, Mammika is an ordinary laborer who wears a faded shirt and buys his fish and veggies at the market just like everyone else before heading home, not a fancy guy at all, but his model transformation made everyone look at him quite differently. 

The makeover video where he gets styled and cut has been shared countless times. So now Mammika has his own model Instagram where he shared behind the scenes and exclusive photoshoot footage, called mammikka_007.  Way to pick a cool moniker there, man. Mammikka says that he would like to try modeling along with his regular job as a daily wage laborer, and with his Instagram is showing off how well he can do.
