Jayasurya has confirmed that the shooting of his upcoming film Captain has begun and will progress at a fast pace. Touted to be a biopic on the former National Football Captain Vatta Parambath Sathyan, Captain will portray the life of the football legend who captained the team in the 1995 SAF Games and went on to win the gold medal. Tragically, VP Sathyan committed suicide in 2006 owing to financial problems. He jumped in front of a speeding train in Chennai to end his life.

Written and directed by Prajeesh Sen, the film is produced by George TL under his banner Goodwill Entertainments. Captain will have Anu Sithara playing the female lead and she will be seen as Anitha, VP Sathyan’s wife. Sources have it that Captain will be made on a huge budget.

Sathyan, despite his illustrious career, never hogged the limelight.
