Jayasurya was shooting for his upcoming film Thrissur Pooram when he sustained mild head injuries after he collapsed on the sets. The star was shooting for an action sequence continuously for 10 days and it took a toll on his health, say sources close to the film unit. Incidentally, this is Jayasurya’s first mass action film. 

Music director Ratheesh Vega, who has written the film, said to the Times of India, “He (Jayasurya) fainted and suffered a mild head injury after hitting against a metal object. He was immediately taken to a private hospital and the team has taken a break for five days as he needs to rest.”

Recalling the incident, Jayasurya told TOI, “I was really exhausted and in the morning when I went to the location, I realised that I cannot do the action scenes as I couldn’t raise my hands.”

Wielding the megaphone for this venture is Rajesh Mohanan. The story and screenplay are by Ratheesh Vega. He has also composed the music. Deepu Joseph will be in charge at the editing table and RD Rajasekar has been signed up to crank the camera. Thrissur Pooram will be shot in different locations in Thrissur, Coimbatore and Hyderabad. Anu Sithara has been roped in to play the female lead in this flick. The others in the cast include Senthil Krishna, Sabumon Abdusamad, Vijay Babu, Gayathri Arun, Mallika Sukumaran and Sreejith Ravi. 

Jayasurya will also be seen playing an important cameo in Puzhikkadakan. The cameo role was so impressive that Jayasurya did not want to let it go, we hear from sources. Wielding the megaphone for Puzhikkadakan is debut director Gireesh Nair who has penned the story in association with Unni Malayil. The film’s screenplay and dialogues have been written by Shyal Satheesh and Hari Prasad Koleri.
