Published: Tuesday, September 30, 2008, 14:14 [IST]

For the first time in his career spanning more than 20 years in Malayalam cinema, comedy actor Indrans will don the lead role in Sudharil Sudhan, to be directed by debutant Jayaraj Vijay. Indrans will portray the role of an ardent political worker, Ramankutty, who fails to fulfil some serious responsibilities. The film deals with Ramankutty's struggles in the party, when it takes severe actions against him as part of its face-saving process.

Produced by Joy Jacob under the banner of Laseega Media Lab, Sudharil Sudhan includes a bit seriousness and comedy. Apart from Indrans in the lead role, the movie will have Mukesh, Kalabhavan Mani, Lalu Alex, Jagathi Sreekumar, Innocent, Sai Kumar, Anoop Chandran, Mamukoya and Bindu Panikar in major roles. Other details about the film are awaited.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]Indrans, a tailor by profession, debuted in films with Choothattam as a costume designer. It was producer Charlie who offered him a chance to assist in costume designing. Although he had the opportunity to meet many filmmakers, including evergreen hero Prem Nazir, Sattar, Pappu, Jose Prakash and Jayabharathi, he concentrated only on designing costumes for several years in the industry. However, he did very small roles on screen.

Soon, Indrans started getting fresh assignments from well-known directors like Padmarajan, Venu Nagavally, Shaji N. Karun, Sibi Malayil and K. Madhu. CID Unni Krishnan was a turning point in his career as an actor. Luckily, his brand of comedy clicked among the audiences and he went on to become one of the mainstream comedians in Kerala. Since then, he is busy till date.

Indrans had acted in more than 200 films so far. He created his own style in cinema and never replicated the comedy of the legendary Adoor Bhasi, Bhadoor or Jagathi Sreekumar. Renowned directors Adoor Gopalakrishnan and T.V. Chandran too offered him roles.
