Kunchacko Boban talks about working with Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval’s Nna, Thaan Case Kodu
The past few years, Kunchacko Boban has backed films that he truly believes in and its results are evident. Be it Nayattu or Pada, the actor has been going from strength to strength with these films, and so you are inclined to believe him when he says that his upcoming movie Nna, Thaan Case Kodu, which is helmed by Android Kunjappan Ver. 5.25, will be among his best till date.
In fact, the actor, who completed 25 years in his career this year, says that he had insisted that he and Ratheesh collaborate on this film first even when they had other opportunities as he had believed in the potential of the movie.
Kunchacko said that Ratheesh first narrated the thought of Nna, Thaan Case Kodu before the pandemic. “So, we had decided back then that this is a film that had to be released in theatres,” he told Reporter TV recently. Though there were discussions for another project during the pandemic, Kunchacko said that he insisted that if he and Ratheesh teamed up for a movie, it would be Nna, Thaan Case Kodu.
The actor said there was always the option to do a film with a limited budget that could have made a table profit before its release. “But I as well as everyone who has worked in the movie believe that this film has a soul beyond all that,” he said, adding that the film’s producer Santosh T Kuruvilla was the biggest supporter of the cause.
Even when the budget of the movie exceeded what they had initially planned, the makers made no compromise in terms of how the film had to be made, he explained, adding that is also one of the reasons that he joined Nna, Thaan Case Kodu as its co-producer. “I am really excited about this film and I want people to watch it in theatres – for the scenes that make the audience laugh, bring tears in their eyes and also for those moments of thrill,” said Kunchacko.
Nna, Thaan Case Kodu, which is a social satire also starring Gayathrie Shankar, is set to release in theatres on August 11.
