Jayasurya, the versatile actor has received the special jury award at the 63rd National Film Awards. Interestingly, veteran director Ramesh Sippy, the jury chairman is all praises for Jayasurya.
Sippy states that Jayasurya has delivered incredible performances in both Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam and Lukka Chuppi. He was considered for the Best Actor award, along with Amitabh Bachchan and Mammootty.
But, the jury had already decided to select only one actor for the Best Actor, unlike the earlier years. So, they decided to award Big B with the Best Actor award and Jayasurya with the special jury mention.
Reportedly, the jury decided to eliminate Mammootty from the list, as the megastar has won the Best Actor trophy, three times earlier. However, Jayasurya considers the special jury mention as a great honour.
The actor feels that he is extremely lucky to be considered for the Best Actor award, along with the two greatest actors of Indian cinema. He has been receiving huge appreciations from all over.
Jayasurya is currently shooting for Roshan Andrews's upcoming movie School Bus, in which he shares the screen with Kunchacko Boban and Aparna Gopinath. The movie will hit the theatres by mid-2016.
