Shoot for ‘Thrissur Pooram’ is currently progressing at a brisk pace. It is being directed by Rajesh Mohanan and is produced by Vijay Babu’s Friday Film House. Music director Ratheesh Vega is debuting as scriptwriter with this film, which is touted to be an action-packed mass entertainer. It has Jayasurya playing a larger-than-life character named Pullu Giri. ‘Big Boss’ fame Sabumon Abdusamad plays the villain in the film. Though he has acted in quite a few films, ‘Thrissur Pooram’ will have Sabu in a fierce negative character.
