Actor Arjun Ashokan, who has hit a purple patch recently with being part of superhits such as Ajagajantharam, Jan.E.Man and Super Sharanya, recently revealed that he had to miss out on a huge role in #Home, which was lauded by the audience and critics last year.

The actor, during an interview ahead of his recent release Member Rameshan 9aam Ward, divulged that he was the initial choice to play the character of Indran’s son in Rojin Thomas’ feel-good family entertainer, which released directly on Amazon Prime Video in 2021.

Arjun said he had to opt out of the film due to scheduling conflicts and that’s how the makers zeroed in on Sreenath Bhasi to play the character. Arjun, however, also admitted that Sreenath was the best fit for the role after watching the film.

The movie revolved around a technologically-handicapped dad, played by Indrans, who tries to bond with his sons after overcoming the hurdle. Sreenath played the role of a filmmaker, whose outburst is streamed live because his father had accidentally turned on the live option in his social media app.

Arjun, meanwhile, was part of Ajagajantharam and Jan.E.Man – the films crossed 75 days and 100 days, respectively, in theatres last week. He also played the male lead in Girish AD’s Super Sharanya, starring Anaswara Rajan, Naslen and Mamitha Baiju. The actor was also part of Ahammed Kabeer’s Madhuram.

In Member Rameshan 9aam Ward, Arjun plays a painter, who is thrust into the world of politics unexpectedly and has to grapple with the changes that comes with being a political leader. The film also has Chemban Vinod Jose and Shabareesh Varma. He also wrapped up shooting for Prithviraj Sukumaran’s upcoming ‘mass’ action entertainer Kaduva.

In a recent interview with OTTplay, Arjun talked about what works for him as an actor. “I don’t really have a comfort zone. It depends entirely on the team that I work with. I try to create that zone in all the projects I work on,” he said.
