Actor Tovino Thomas, who is receiving rave reviews for his performance in the recently released superhero film “Minnal Murali”, has expressed his desire to work in Bollywood films.
The Malayalam star made her debut in 2012 with “Prabhuvinte Makkal” and has been appreciated for her work in films such as “7th Day”, “Ennu Ninte Moideen”, “Uyare” and “Mayanadhi”, among others.
After spending around nine years in the Malayalam film industry, Thomas said he was open to venturing into new territories, including Hindi cinema.
“The Bollywood industry is fortunate to have some amazing filmmakers, but the character shouldn’t demand an actor like me until then I will,” Thomas told PTI.
The “Mayanadi” star was treated to “Laal Singh Chaddha”, along with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Thomas said he dropped the opportunity to work on this “great Bollywood movie” because he had already committed to completing the remaining parts of “Minnal Murali”. The role was eventually played by Naga Chaitanya.
“I received an offer for a very big film but I had to refuse because I was in the middle of filming ‘Minnal Murali’.
“I don’t regret it but I have a feeling of disappointment because I had to say no because I had no other choice. Even if I wanted to do it, I’m glad I didn’t compromise on ‘Minnal Murali’, ”added the 32-year-old actor.
“Minnal Murali” features Thomas as Jaison, a tailor who gains special powers after being struck by lightning. Directed by Basil Joseph, the Malayalam-language film released on December 24 on Netflix.
