PC George as Chief Minister in Jayaram’s Daivame Kaithozham K Kumarakanam
Jayaram is currently shooting for actor Salim Kumar’s upcoming directorial titled Daivame Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam. Unlike Salim Kumar’s previous films, this one is said to be a fun filled family entertainer. Anusree replaced Mamta Mohandas to play the female lead opposite Jayaram in this movie.
Another interesting addition to the cast is MLA PC George, who is one of the most controversial personalities in Kerala politics currently. Despite all the controversies, he is hugely among the Malayalis majorly due to his outspoken nature. The Poonjar MLA has been brought on board to play the role of a Chief Minister in the movie. This is actually his second film this year after doing a guest role in Achayans, another Jayaram starrer.
Sreenivasan, Salim Kumar and Nedumudi Venu, Surabhi Lakshmi, Kochu Premam, Marimayam fame Manju and Kottayam Pradeep are also part of the supporting cast in Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam. This is Salim Kumar’s third directorial after the critically acclaimed Compartment and Karutha Joothan. His story for Karutha Joothan, which discussed about the Jewish history of Kerala, won him a Kerala State Award last year.
Daivame Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam with Jayaram will be his first attempt in making a mainstream commercial film. This upcoming movie is being jointly produced by Alwin Antony of Ananya Films and Dr Zachariah Thomas of United Global Media (UGM) Entertainment.
