Actor Narain has decided to quit Malayalam films after completing his ongoing Minnam Mini Koottam. He says no to all the Malayalam directors those approached him for their next films. After the success of Anjathey in Tamil, actor Narain carefully selected the scripts for him and he delayed to start his next Tamil movie for nearly six months after the release of Anjathey.
Now, he signed a new film titled Pookadai Ravi under the direction of Selvaraghavan’s former assistant Shivakumar and two more new big projects in Tamil also will be announced soon. After seeing the Tamil film industry’s size and business, the actor decides to come out from the small Malayalam Cinema temporarily. Not only that, the actor already has some rifts with the Malayalam film trade bodies, particularly with AMMA. Very recently he had refused to act in AMMA’s fund raising multi starrer mega film Twenty:20.
Narain says, “Now I am busy shooting for the Malayalam movie Minna Minni Kootam with Meera Jasmine and it will be the last commitment in Malayalam for a long time as I have decided to focus more on Tamil movies. This decision was taken by me even before the release of Anjathey. Now the result of the film forced me to declare my decision boldly. There is no scope for actors like me in Malayalam film world. They would never allow a new talent into the industry.”
It may be recalled that a couple of months ago, in his exclusive interview to Oneindia.in, the actor had heavily criticized AMMA and some veteran filmmakers for not endorsing new talents in Malayalam.
That time he said, “I was forced to compete with the so-called veterans to get a place in there. In fact, I had exposed my views on the industry in most of my press briefings. But none had the guts to publish the uncut version of my views. They edited all my comments and criticisms. I feel much comfortable in Tamil and even plans to quit Malayalam films.”
Now he confirms what he said in the interview.
