Talking to an English newspaper, Subil Surendran confirmed casting Krish J Sathar for the lead role in the movie Kalkki much before Ladies and Gentleman released. The director says that the hero in Kalkki has different shades. He was looking for a talented actor when he saw Krish's photos. He approached the young actor, who has a Broadway connect, and narrated the story. Both got in sync.
The title of the movie, Kalkki, suggests that the film is based on a mythological story. When asked about it, Subil Surendran says that there is no mythological connect to the story, but he declines to reveal the story of the flick. He only maintains the protagonist has many shades.
Meanwhile, Krish J Sathar has also confirmed that he has been signed for Subil Surendran's Kalkki. The budding actor says that he was very much impressed with the way Subil moulded the protagonist Kalkki. He will have different looks in the film. He adds that he would like to experiment and do a lot of offbeat stuff.
