Resul Pookutty is one of the many who has brought pride to Kerala. He won the Oscar Award for Best Sound Engineer for his movie Slumdog Millionaire and is one of the busiest sound engineer these dyas. Now, the news on him claims that he is all set to change his track from a sound engineer to a director and that he wishes to cast Big B in his debut film!
"I will be directing a Hindi film soon and I have given my script to Mr. Bachchan and he has loved the script. I am waiting for his dates. We shall soon make an announcement," he said.
Although he bagged the prestigious Oscar award for his work in Slumdog Millionaire, Pookutty says the honour best suits American movies. "Oscar is not for Indian cinema, it's for American cinema. We both work differently and we have to respect each other. We have diverse cultures and we are making all kinds of cinema. We are making films in 52 languages."
Resul was last seen working for the Malayalam film Kunjananthante Kada. Mammootty played the lead role in the film and it was directed by Salim Ahamed. The movie did not do well at the Box Office but, it did went to many film festivals and brought laurels. Reports claim that he has signed one more movie in Malayalam.
