Njan Marykutty out on June 15
The film, directed by Ranjith Shankar, stars Jayasurya in the role of a transwoman
Director Ranjith Shankar's sixth film with Jayasurya, Njan Marykutty, has been confirmed for release on June 15. The actor-director duo has delivered several hits in the past, most notably Punyalan Agarbattis, its sequel Punyalan Private Limited, and Su..Su..Sudhi Vathmeekam.
What's special about their new film is that Jayasurya will be essaying the role of a transwoman. This is a bold move for the actor, who is going through a great phase in his career right now. A few days ago, the trailer of the film was released by five transwomen and was met with positive response.
Njan Marykutty also stars Innocent, Suraj Venjaramoodu and Aju Varghese in supporting roles. Jayasurya's wife Saritha has designed the costumes.
The film is produced and distributed by the actor's own Dreams and Beyond, and Punyalan Cinemas Release, respectively. Jayasurya recently won rave reviews for his performance in Captain, which was based on the tragic life of footballer VP Sathyan.
