Actor Tovino Thomas, who has received rave reviews for his performance in the recently released superhero film Minnal Murali, has expressed his desire to work in Bollywood movies.
The Malayalam actress, who made her film debut in 2012 with Prabhu’s Makkal, has been acclaimed for her performances in films like 7th Day, Ninte Moideen, Uyare and Mayanadi.
After spending nine years in the Malayalam film industry, Thomas said he was ready to venture into new areas, including Hindi cinema.
“The Bollywood industry is blessed with amazing directors, but I only do it if the character needs an actor like me,” Thomas told PTI.
Mayanadi starrer Lal Singh Chadha starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor has been offered.
Thomas said he missed the opportunity to work on this “big Bollywood movie” because he was already committed to completing the rest of Lightning Murali. Eventually the role was played by Naga Chaitanya.
“I got an offer for a very big film but had to say no as the shooting of ‘Minnal Murali’ was in the middle.
“I’m not sorry about that, but I’m disappointed I had to say no, because I had no other choice.
Lightning portrays Murali Thomas as Jason, a tailor who gains special strength by being struck by lightning.
The Malayalam language film directed by Basil Joseph was released on Netflix on December 24.
