Kumbalangi Nights and Bhoothakaalam actor Shane Nigam seem to be breaking out of his mould as a troubled youngster with his recent choices. After doing an all-out entertainer Ullasam, the actor is now shooting for debutant Syam Sasi’s film in Palakkad, which once again has him doing a role that he isn’t familiar with.
Talking to OTTplay, the actor, who was also part of Veyil earlier this year, says, “I play a civil officer in the movie, which also has Sunny Wayne and Sidharth Bharathan. It’s a drama-thriller.” The film, which is scripted by Mandaram writer M Sajas, also has Kaithi and Vikram Vedha composer Sam CS as part of the team.
Shane is also thrilled that he is able to be part of movies that offer him opportunities to push himself. “I believe there is a variety in terms of the scripts being offered to me. People now are coming up with new concepts and things that we haven’t seen before in films,” he says. On how he rates his growth as an actor, Shane says, “There have been obvious changes that come with time, but I’d rather leave that to the audience to judge.”
Meanwhile, the actor also has some exciting projects coming up including a romcom with Nadirsha. His next release will be Bermuda, which is helmed by TK Rajeev Kumar and also has Vinay Forrt in the lead. The movie is currently scheduled to hit theatres on July 29.
Shane will also be working with Priyadarshan in his upcoming thriller, which is also scripted and co-produced by the filmmaker. The movie, which is expected to go on floors in August-September, also has Shine Tom Chacko in a pivotal role.
On collaborating with veteran filmmakers, Shane says, “In my career so far, I have mostly worked with new directors or young filmmakers – apart from TK Rajeev Kumar in Bermuda and Shaji N Karun in Oolu. When you are working with experienced directors, you also grow as an actor and a filmmaker.”
