My heartfelt wishes to Anoop and `Jawan of Vellimala’
We shared the day with less pomp, humbly remembering those who worked hard to make the film a grand success! Our viewers above all are kept close to our heart!
We concluded shoot of Ayalum Njanum Thammil at Munnar on Saturday. It held another emotional angle for me as it was the last day in the acting career of Samvrutha Sunil, the talented actress who stood in front of camera for the first time for my directorial venture Rasikan, now signing off from silver screen with another venture of mine!!
She has been part of films for almost 10 years..You know she has tried consistently to be part of good cinema. As the director who introduced her acting talent to films, I was proud to see her focused attempt to be professional in all work that she accepted irrespective of the screen time and kind of role she was offered.
My team along with me wish her the best as she enters a new phase of life from November 1st..! May Almighty shower choicest blessings for her future!
So far I have not spoken about my leading lady! Daniela Zacheri is a trained hip-hop dancer from Austria. She has completed one year acting course from UK film Institute. She naturally needed to be acclimatized to the kind of movements and acting familiar to Malayalee aesthetic. She has almost learned it by now and seems comfortable!
Nelson and Gopalan are the new members in the actors’ team from Kerala. Days and minutes are flying by. It feels like a huge new colourful kaleidoscope with a bunch of new elements added every moment!
We have two line producers – Miguel and Ceaser. Later Goyo took charge of directing the production crew. Maya from U.K is assisting him. (She is Spanish, though named Maya!!). She also assists with Spanish language related matters. As I have been sharing my concerns before shoot of two cultures, languages and different styles of operation; everything has been tough . But as we always say, believe in the goodness of mankind…things will start working out for better! And I think this shoot is a perfect example of our belief in almighty and fellow beings around! Thank you all!
