Indajith and the team of Nayakan are presently shooting in Malaysia. This is the first film of Director Lijo Jose Pellissery, son of late Jose Pellissery (who was a theatre and film actor). Nayakan also features several other prominent Malayalam actors including Siddhique, Thilakan, Jagathy, Lalu Alex, Sreejith Ravi, Vijay Menon, Rekha Pillai and Sumi.
Touted as an action thriller, this flick has Indrajith playing the role of a Kathakali exponent who is forced to join the underworld to take revenge on the people who destroyed his family.
Indrajith is getting a golden opportunity to portray his talents as a solo hero in this film. Most of his films till date featured him alongside other heroes; the couple of movies where he was the solo hero did not do well. With Indrajith and a talented supporting cast, Nayakan is expected to be a well-made movie.
