Saiju Kurup will play the role of a priest for the first time in his career in Bash Mohammed’s ‘Lukka Chuppi’. This is a departure from the kind of roles he has done till date.
The actor is playing the role of Fr Xavier who is one of the five college buddies. They decide to have a re-union after several years of college. The priest was a casanova in college and therefore single. The other friends bring in their wives to the re-union. That is how the story begins.
The other major roles have been played by Jayasurya, Murali Gopy and Joju George in this film.
The actor admitted that he was a tad conscious in the beginning as the film had sync sound. Hence there was no dubbing. But later it turned out to be a nice experience.
Ironically the actor in his recent film ‘Action Hero Biju’ played a cop again, after ‘Dolphins’. He plays the realistic role of a circle inspector in the film. The story revolves around all the incidents that take place in the life of another police officer, played by Nivin Pauly.
‘KL 10 Pathu’ a rom-com, is another upcoming film of Saiju where he plays Unni Mukundan’s brother.
