Thiruvananthapuram: Actor Biju Menon said the film fraternity should collectively discuss about the legislative assembly panel’s recent proposal to remove drinking and smoking scenes from the movies, and come up with a stand on it. He added that if the proposal is approved, then the film makers would be compelled to make only religious movies. The actor was speaking at an interaction held by the press club with the cast and crew of the latest movie Sathyam Paranjal Vishwasikuvo.

Biju Menon said that his character called Suni in the movie has no similarities at all with him in real life. The actor noted that unlike Suni, he is a person who displays great affection and responsibility towards his family. He added he was happy to become part of commercially successful films.

“I am thrilled that the movie has been able to portray a theme which closely relates to the lives of ordinary Malayalis, in the most realistic way,” said Biju Menon. Meanwhile screen writer Sajeev Pazhoor observed that the title has played a vital role in the film’s success.

The award winning screen writer revealed that the film was initially given a different title. It was producer Sandeep Senan who suggested ‘Sathyam Paranjal Vishwasikuvo’ while the discussions were underway. Sajeev admitted that he loved the title as soon as he heard it and decided to go with it. “A screenwriter aims to communicate the theme amazingly to the audience. I believe that has effectively happened in this movie as well,” noted Pazhoor.

Veteran actor Alencier said that he enjoys doing all kinds of characters. He noted that an actor’s greatest tool is his body language. An actor’s biggest challenge is to alter his body language to suit the character. Alencier added that he only chooses characters that suit him well.

Actor Sudhi Kopa expressed happiness that his character called Thamara is well appreciated by the Malayali audience. Dinesh, who played a significant role in the movie, said that it was important for him to be part of good cinema. Producer Sandeep Senan and Rema Devi too had taken part in the ‘Meet the Press’ event.
