Roopesh Peethambaran’s blunt reply to a threat comment
Roopesh Peethambaran is returning back to face the camera after a long gap of 22 long years, through debutant Tom Emmatty’s Oru Mexican Aparatha. Roopesh was last seen as an actor in Mohanlal’s cult blockbuster Sphadikam, where he played the iconic character Aadu Thoma’s younger part. He has also directed two movies, the Dulquer Salmaan starrer Theevram and the multistarrer You Too Brutus.
Tovino Thomas is playing the lead role in Oru Mexican Aparatha. His character is a student leader from the left front. Roopesh will be seen as the antagonist, representing the opposition. Official trailer for the movie was released recently to great response from the viewers.
Roopesh Peethambaran recently posted a character poster in his official Facebook page. One of his followers made a threatening comment on the post, saying that the actor will not be spared if a drop of blood is shed from SFI’s members (in the movie). Roopesh unfazed by the threat replied back with his address. He also updated a seperate post with the screenshot of the comment by adding a caption,
“When I say don’t mix politics and cinema, this is what I mean!!!
Shame on these kind of people who do stunts to get attention!!”
The makers fearing such reactions have made it clear that the political parties shown in the movie are SFY and KSQ. Roopesh has been getting appreciation for taking a bold stand on such a critical issue. It is very pathetic that people are unable to draw a line between real life and reel life.
The actor had earlier stunned the audience and industry insiders with his amazing physical transformation. He had lost around 20 kgs to play his part in the movie.
