Sreenath Bhasi as Paavam Gujarati and angry IT employee
Every time they say Sreenath Bhasi’s career is over, the actor comes up with something which makes him the darling of the audiences again. His role as the rebellious younger brother in Jacobinte Swargarajyam earlier this year was one such and Sreenath is back in the limelight. The actor has yet another interesting role coming up, in Khalid Rahman’s next film. He plays a Gujarati youngster settled in Mattancherry, who, he says, is “more mallu than most Malayalis”.
His character, Kishan Lal, runs a sweet shop in Mattancherry. “It’s his father’s shop, and he is a sensitive, paavam kind of guy, a mandan.” Although Sreenath is a Kochi native, it was a surprise to him to know there were so many Gujarati’s here, he says. “While shooting for the film, I met a friend of mine in the shop that we shot in for a scene. He was my senior but I never knew he was a Gujarati!”
The film, he adds, is a family entertainer. “It has a lot of interesting characters played by Soubin, Asif and a fresh face Rajisha. All of them are my friends and so it was fun doing the film.”
