Jayasurya to start shooting from Sathyan biopic from next year
Recently, on the 48th death anniversary of legendary Malayalam actor Sathyan, his biopic was officially announced. Jayasurya will be playing Sathyan’s role in the film and it will be directed by debutant Ratheesh Reghunandan. The director has also penned the script jointly with BT Anil Kumar and KG Santhosh. Vijay Babu of Friday Film House is producing the movie.
Sathyan biopic will go on floors only by next year. Script works have already been completed and Jayasurya will start prepping up for the role once he is done with his ongoing commitments. Sathyan, popularly known as Sathyan Master, was one of the first major star actors in Malayalam cinema.
At a time when acting was extremely dramatic, Sathyan was famous for his realistic style of performance. A recipient of two Kerala State awards, Sathyan has acted in over 100 films between 1951 and 1971. Before becoming an actor, he was a school teacher, an army man and also a police officer.
It will be really interesting to see how a versatile actor like Jayasurya brings life to Sathyan’s character.
It must be remembered that, last year, the actor had starred in the biopic of late Indian footballer VP Sathyan. Besides that, he is also acting in the biopic of ‘Metro Man’ E Sreedharan. VK Prakash will be directing the film, which has been titled as Rama Sethu.
