Raj B Shetty has officially made his Malayalam cinema debut today with Turbo. Yes, he did bring his film Toby to Malayalam audiences last year, but that was a dubbed movie. This is the real deal for Raj, who has a healthy fan following in the state, thanks to his films like Ondu Motteya Kathe and Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana.

Raj plays Vetrivel Shanmugha Sundaram, the main antagonist in the film by director Vysakh, which is based on a script by Midhun Manuel Thomas.
