Joju posted on Instagram that the compliment from one of his favourite actors, was like receiving an award in itself. “I don’t know what to say ..so touched ..it’s High for me ..soo happy …. it’s a great appreciation from one of my fav actor ..I can’t hold myself own …this is my 1st award for Nayattu, thank you so much (sic),” he wrote.
The post has been liked by his Nayattu co-star Nimisha Sajayan, and several other actors, including Tovino, Sarjano Khalid and Lena, who wrote, “Awesome performance”. Ahammed Khabeer, who directed Joju in June and also has him in upcoming film Madhuram, also commented with hearts. Finals director PR Arun wrote, “You are making all of us so so proud.”
Joju has a few interesting films coming up, including Peace, in which he plays an older ‘freaken’, Thuramukham and Malik.
