Suresh Gopi's Raama Ravanan in Chennai
Malayalam top star Suresh Gopi was in Chennaiï¿½to participate inï¿½the premiere of his Malayalam flick Raama Ravanan directed by Bijau Vattapara. The actor plays an offbeat character, a Lankan rebel, in this film based on 'Manomi', a novel written by popular writer Madhavi Kutty aka Kamala Das. Mithra plays the role of Manomi.
So why did he choose to premiere the film in Chennai? “I thought the subject was relevant and would captivate people here. Hence, we decided to screen it in Chennai first. Though a Malayalee, my heart goes out to millions of Tamils who suffered in the Lankan war. I am an Indian in my heart. And to be honest with you, I used to be fluent in Tamil till a decade ago.”
