Director Priyadarshan to act in Malayalam movie

March 15, 2013 14:17 IST

PriyadarshanDirector Priyadarshan will be making his acting debut in an upcoming Malayalam film.
 
Priyadarshan, who has directed almost 87 films in several Indian languages including Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, will try his hands on acting now after being a director, producer and screenwriter.
 
"I am acting in a Malayalam film. It is an arty film and not a commercial one," Priyadarshan said.
 
The national award winning director will be seen in Malayalam director Blessy's next film, which reportedly is titled Kalimannu.
 
"I am playing a director's role. It is a cameo," he said.
 
Priyadarshan began his film career with Malayalam cinema and later ventured into other languages. He is best known for his comedy flicks, but has also tried his hand at action and thriller films.
 
When asked if it is easy being in front of the camera, Priyadarshan said, "In front of the camera I find it difficult. As far as the actors are concerned, it is easy for them to do it but not for me."
 
Presently, the 56-year-old is looking forward to the release of his next Hindi directorial venture Rangrezz, a remake of Tamil hit Naadodigal.
 
Releasing on March 21, Rangrezz stars Jackky Bhagnani and Southern actress Priya Anand in the lead.
