Jayasurya to play a kleptomaniac
After winning special mentions for his acting both at the National and State Awards this year, in the movie Su…Su…Sudhi Vathmeekam, Jayasurya will soon be back to his favourite turf — comedy.
In director-scriptwriter Siddique’s next movie, the actor will be playing the comic role of a kleptomaniac.
Siddique says, “Jayasurya plays an orphan named Lucky. However, his character considers that apart from his name there is no luck in his life. He is a kleptomaniac (people with an urge to steal, generally without the need or profit) and the funny part is that Lucky himself returns the items he flicks, at a later point.” Lucky is also an engineering drop out in the movie. “He loses the sponsorship for his studies due to the behavioural disorder. However, he is quite ambitious in life, and luck does favour him eventually,” explains the director.
Jayasurya, who is quite excited about the project, says, “It would be every actor’s dream to work in films by Siddique, who has made hits across languages like Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi. When I heard the story I liked it, and I’m extremely happy to be part of it.” But there were more surprises in store for him. He says, “As soon as I reached home, director Lal called me to check where I was. When I said I was at home, he came over and narrated the story of his next directorial. I committed his film too on the same day, and it was quite a happy coincidence!” Sachy is scripting Lal’s film.
The shoot of Siddique’s movie will start in September with Kannur and Mangalore as its main locations. The director will also be scripting and writing the film’s dialogues. “We are yet to decide on the rest of the cast and technicians of the movie,” he signs off.
