Suresh Gopi and Shaji Kailas, the popular actor-director duo, is all set to team again for a political thriller, which has been titled The State. Suresh Gopi will play a tough police officer in the movie.
As per the reports, The State revolves around the present social scenario of Kerala. Suresh Gopi essays ADGP Ravi Varma, who investigates an infamous case which turns the political atmosphere of Kerala up-side-down.
Popular South Indian actress Sukanya will play a key role in the movie. Vijayaraghavan, Siddique and Suraj Venjarammoodu will appear in the other important roles. The State is penned by Rajesh Jayaraman.
Shaji Kailas and Suresh Gopi last teamed up for the movie The King And The Commissioner, which also had Mammootty in the lead role. Despite the initial hype, the movie miserably failed to impress the audience and critics.
It is a low phase in Shaji Kailas's career. The once hitmaker has been delivering back to back box office failures since last few years. He was also harshly criticized by the critics, for the repetitive themes of his films.
Suersh Gopi, who has recently appointed as the chairman of National Film Development Corporation, is also busy in his career with a handful of promising projects. His upcoming movie My God will hit the theatres soon.
