blockbuster movie Sivaji: the Boss had Suman playing the
negative role of Adhisheshan. His performance in the movie fetched
him another big offer to act in the big budget venture Pazhassi
Raja starring Mammootty in the lead.
For Suman, who has acted in several Tamil and Telugu films, this
is his first Malayalam film. Pazhassi Raja, directed by
Hariharan with a script by M.T. Vasudevan, will have Suman playing
the role of Pazhayaveedan Chandru. The film also stars Sarath Kumar
in an important role.
Reportedly Suman has taken special training in Kalaripayattu
(one of the oldest forms of martial arts that started in Kerala)
for this role.
