Joju George to play the lead in Rajeev Ravi’s next
Joju George is getting rave reviews for his terrific performance in ‘Nayattu’. As Maniyan, a veteran police officer on the run, the actor got his body language and angst spot on. He had put on nearly 132 kilos for his character in it. Joju is currently in the process of shedding all the extra weight. He has committed for a new film with director Rajeev Ravi, which demands him to be in a much fitter look.
In a recent interview to The Cue, Joju said that it was during the shoot of ‘Virus’ that he interacted with Rajeev Ravi for the first time. The latter was impressed with his performance and had asked him to reduce weight so that he can do a variety of roles. Later, Rajeev Ravi cast him in a crucial role in ‘Thuramukham’. Biju Menon was originally supposed to play the part but he opted out due to some unknown reasons.
Joju’s next with Rajeev Ravi is being scripted by GR Indugopan. More details regarding the project are expected to be announced soon.
