Roshan Mathew to play the lead in Anurag Kashyap’s next
Last day, actress-turned-filmmaker Geetu Mohandas made a startling revelation through her social media handle. Malayali actor Roshan Mathew, who has done a key role in Geetu’s upcoming movie ‘Moothon’, is heading Bollywood. He has been roped in to play the lead in Anurag Kashyap’s new film.
It must be noted that Kashyap, one of the leading filmmakers in Indian cinema, was involved in ‘Moothon’ as the co-writer. Apparently, the director was highly impressed by Roshan’s performance in the movie and decided to sign him for his next. Though other details regarding the movie are not yet known, Roshan couldn’t have asked for a better launch in Bollywood. Shoot for the movie commences today in Mumbai.
Geetu Mohandas’ Facebook post reads,
When I was filming Moothon, I got close to all my actors, rooting for them and wanting the best to happen in their lives always . That ‘want’ will be forever. I’m so proud to announce that my actor and good friend, Roshan Mathew with his unbelievable performance in Moothon, has landed himself a beautiful project as the lead in none other than the maverick filmmaker #Anurag Kashyap ‘s latest. The shoot commences tomorrow in Bombay.
I wish you the world Roshan. This is just the beginning.
From your proud director.
P. S. To all my dear friends who’ve been asking us for updates on #Moothon, it’s in post production and will be releasing soon.
Roshan Mathew had his first break in 2016 with the youthful entertainer ‘Aanandam’. He later did notable roles in films like ‘Koode’, ‘Orayiram Kinakkalal’ and more recently in ‘Thottappan’. A very active person in the theatre scene, Roshan had recently directed a English-Malayalam bilingual play titled ‘A Very Normal Family’.
