Malayalam film industry is running short of not only heroines but also villains. And, as usual, we're going to import our heroes too from Kollywood.
Sketch, the new film based on Kochi's underworld activities, will mark the debut of 'Karate' Raja in Malayalam. This black-belt holder in Karate from Chidambaram, Tamilnadu, was a lottery-ticket seller before he made his debut in Kamalhasan's Veerumandi. The role was very small but Raja did get noticed.
He now has a series of films in Tamil, including the dual negative roles that he's playing in Shivaji.
"My destiny will change as soon as Shivaji gets released," he says.
In Sketch too, he's playing a negative role.
"I'm not that interested in doing lead roles. Until now, I had only starred in negative roles and I'm very happy with it," Karate Raja assures us.
