Jayasurya is playing a blind cricketer in his upcoming movie, which is yet to be titled. The actor, who is a perfectionist, wanted to experience the same in his real life. So, the actor walked through the streets of Hyderabad to live the life of a blind man!

Yes, Jayasurya turned blind for two days and walked through the streets of Hyderabad. But surprisingly people didn't identify him as one of the superstars of Mollywood. Jayasurya waled through the streets, parks, went to hotels, crossed the roads - all as a blind man.

While he entered a hotel to eat food, a Malayali family identified him and called him by his name. But, the actor, who knew that he will be identified if he responds, did not bother to look back, ate his food and moved on. The family got surprised and thought it as another person whom they mistook as Jayasurya.

Jayasurya has taken this step to make his role as the blind cricketer to its perfection. Directed by Boban Samuel, the movie is produced by Ashiq Usman. Jayasurya left for Hyderabad to experiment the life of a blind man with the scriptwriter Arun Lal and the actor was indeed successful. When he came to know that people did not identify him and considered him as blind, Jayasurya was all the more excited.

The shooting of the film has begun in Kochi. Gundalpet and Bangalore are the other major locations where the film will be shot. It tells the story of a cricket team led by blind people. Aparna Gopinath plays the female lead in this movie. Lal, Lalu Alex, Balu Varghese, Kakka Ravi, Edavela Babu, Sunil Sukhada and many others are in the cast.
