Jeethu Joseph, the filmmaker who is on a
high with the success of his latest movie Papanasam,
says that stardom is the biggest curse for the actors. Jeethu was
talking in a recent interview.
The director says that only very few actors are ready to play
the characters without thinking about their image. He states that
he has been lucky enough to work with such actors, including the
veterans Mohanlal and Kamal Hassan.
Most of the actors are extremely image conscious and not ready
to experiment with different roles. Jeethu Joseph feels that the
star status is a burden for the budding actors, as it prevents them
from proving their versatility.
Before starting the filming of Papanasam, some industry
members had warned Jeethu Joseph, that Kamal Hassan is an actor who
interferes in his director's work. But despite the information,
Kamal was a director's actor on sets.
Mohanlal, the lead actor of Jeethu Joseph's blockbuster movie
Drishyam, was also ready to approach the
role in a natural way. The actor was not hesitant to act in the
violent scenes with Kalabhavan Shajohn.
Jeethu Joseph is all set to release his Dileep starrer
Life Of Josutty for Onam. As per
the reports he is planning two projects, with Mohanlal and
Prithviraj in the lead roles.
