How many actors can boast of their screen names being more well-known than their real names? Saju Navodaya can stand and take a bow! The actor known for his comic roles is more famously known as Pashanam Shaji and has become the go-to actor for roles that require humour and comic timing. He was also in the news for his uncanny resemblance to Kerala’s top cop Lokanath Behera. News is that Shaji will be playing the lead in an upcoming film titled Varan Sundaran. Acting opposite him is Aswathy Babu.
The movie is scripted and directed by debutant Manuraj. The shooting of the film has already kick-started in Kozhikode.
