Shaji Kailas had a great turnaround in some points of his filmy career as a movie maker. The director who found his first big hit in a slapstick comedy movie Dr Pashupathy, then went on to become the most wanted director of Mollywood, churning out mega hits which were basically action movies.
But now in 2012, Shaji Kailas is facing another big struggle and slump in his career with almost a dozen flops in the last five years. None of his action films managed to create a big hit or a comeback pad for the director. And now Shaji is trying once again to prove successful, but in a different route.
The new comedy film from the director, in fact one after twenty years is getting ready in the sets. Madirasi will be a movie soaked in satirical humour. Starring Jayaram in the lead, the movie will tell the story of three fathers mixed up in a difficult situation. Kalabhavan Mani and John Vijay appear as the other two fathers apart from Jayaram, who is also teaming up with Shaji Kailas after twenty long years after Kilukkam Petty. The shoot for the movie is currently progressing at a fast pace at locations in Palakkad and Coimbatore
