Official: Jayasurya to star in legendary actor Sathyan’s biopic
We were among the first to report about Jayasurya starring in the biopic of late Malayalam actor Sathyan. Today, on the 48th death anniversary of the legend, the official announcement regarding the project was made. Debutant Ratheesh Reghunandan is directing the movie and script is penned jointly by BT Anil Kumar and KG Santhosh. Vijay Babu of Friday Film House is producing the movie.
Sathyan, popularly known as Sathyan Master, was one of the first major star actors in Malayalam cinema. At a time when acting was more 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. ‘Thacholi Othenan’, ‘Odayil Ninnu’, ‘Chemeen’, ‘Yakshi’ and ‘Anubhavangal Paalichakal’ are some of his most popular films.
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. The movie titled ‘Captain’ won him a Kerala State award for his stellar performance .
Jayasurya was last seen working on ‘Lilli’ fame Prasobh Vijayan’s new film, which is yet to be titled. He has also committed for ‘Vellam’ with Prajesh Sen and ‘Thrissur Pooram’ with Rajesh Mohanan.
