Velleppam: Actor Sanif Talks About His Debut Movie

Actor Sanif is all set to mark his debut in the industry with the movie Velleppam directed by Praveen Raj Pookkada. This movie is a perfect blend of both experienced and new actors in the industry.

Coming to the leads, the movie has Noorin Shereef and Akshay Radhakrishnan as pivotal characters. Actress Roma is making her comeback in the Malayalam movie industry after almost three years.

Actor Sanif is quite excited about his debut and he recently interacted with the media channel. He revealed that due to the current situation, the crew followed all the safety measures to complete the work without any trouble.

The lockdown was declared in March when the crew had just a few more extra parts left to finish. So, we had to stop the work for about 6 months, and going back to the sets later was a completely contrasting experience.

The number of people on the sets was lower than normal. Most of the team was carrying and wearing PPE kits, there were sanitizers and masks on the filming location.

We had to have food in paper dishes that we had to dispose of to maintain the hygiene of the place. It was strange but we also knew that it was for everyone’s security,” says Sanif.

Sanif had also revealed that working with actors was very much fun and a learning experience. Working with actors such as Shine Tom Chacko and Roma in the movie was a huge learning adventure.

It’s a tale set in Thrissur’s Vellepangadi, told into love and friendships. It’s a short movie and Akshay plays the star. I play one of his four loyal friends in the movie, says Sanif.
