Not a biopic: Tovino

Nadikar Thilakam is expected to be a comedy entertainer.

Tovino Thomas told the media that he is delighted to be part of a film that has comedy and other emotions. The movie is not inspired by any real-life characters.

“This is a fictional story with elements of humour and other emotions. Surely, this isn’t a biopic.”

Soubin Shahir plays an important role in the film. It also casts Dhyan Sreenivasan, Shine Tom Chacko, Lal, Sreenath Bhasi, Veena Nandakumar, Suresh Krishna, Aju Varghese, and Anoop Menon in significant roles.
