Those who watched superstar Mohanlal-starrer crime thriller Grand Master cannot easily forget the young chap who essayed the role of Mark Roshan, the antagonist. Arjun Nandakumar, who later became part of several movies in supporting roles and as protagonists, is now coming back to thriller genres.

He is essaying pivotal roles in two thrillers — Oppam and Ore Mukham, which are expected to hit the screens as Onam releases. Arjun says that he was very excited when he got the call from the makers of Oppam to share screen space with Mohanlal, with whom he started his career in Casanova.

 

“It was a really big offer for me as it was after a gap of four years I could become part of a project which has Lal sir in the lead. Though after Grand Master we used to see regularly during the Celebrity Cricket League camps and other functions, it is Oppam which gave me the space to stand along with him in front of the movie camera,” says the doctor-turned-actor.

“Another factor which makes this project close to my heart is that it is with Oppam I got chance to act under Priyadarsan sir’s direction, who has been my favourite director since childhood. Even though I was not part of his previous films, as a player in Kerala Strikers team in CCL, I got enough chances to talk to him. It was during the camp of the last edition of CCL Priyan sir told me about this project,” says Arjun, adding he couldn’t talk much about his role in the suspense thriller.

It was on the sets of yet another thriller Ore Mukham that Arjun joined after Oppam. “Script is the real backbone of this film directed by Sajith Jagadnandan. Set against the backdrop of a college in Thrissur, Ore Mukham narrates the story of a set of students who studied there in 1980s. I act as Aravindan, a close friend of Dhyan Sreenivasan’s Zacharia Pothen,” says the actor, who will be next seen in V. M. Vinu’s Marupadi which has Bhama and Rahman in the lead roles.
