The movie is directed by Nadirshah and written by Suneesh Varanad
The makers of Jayasurya’s upcoming movie Eesho released a surprise character poster of the actor on his birthday today. Unlike the previous posters, this one didn’t have any dark elements of the thriller and rather focused on the character in a pensive mood.
The movie, which is touted to be a thriller, also has Namitha Pramod, Jaffer Idukki and Salim Kumar in pivotal roles. The previous posters of Jayasurya from the movie had him in a hooded avatar, prompting many to speculate if he plays a priest in the film.
The makers, however, are yet to reveal the character details of the film, which was shot after the lockdown restrictions were eased last year.
Earlier this month, the film’s director Nadirshah had faced flak from certain religious groups, who alleged that the movie’s title and tagline, ‘Not From The Bible’, had hurt religious sentiments. While the makers removed the tagline, they said they will not be changing the title. The High Court too dismissed a plea seeking to stay the release of the movie.
Meanwhile, Jayasurya has already finished shooting for Ranjith Sankar’s Sunny, which only has him as the character in the film. He is also part of G Prajesh Sen’s Meri Awaaz Suno, which has Manju Warrier and Sshivada as the female leads. The actor plays the role of a radio jockey in the movie.
He is also expected to begin shooting for John Luther, in which he plays a cop. Recently, it was also announced that the actor will be teaming up with Kunchacko Boban again for a film.
