Actor Sibi Thomas Turning Writer For Rajeev Ravi
Sibi Thomas, who made his acting debut in Dileesh Pothan’s ‘Thondimuthalum Driksaskshiyum’, is now turning screenwriter for a film to be directed by Rajeev Ravi.
Actor Sibi Thomas is set to appear in a new avatar as a screenwriter. He will be penning the screenplay for a film to be directed by Rajeev Ravi and it will be based on a real-life investigation that he had done in 2016.
In a private interview, Sibi spoke about the incident that his screenplay is based on. “This one incident was special in my career as a police officer spanning 15 years. Last year, I spoke about it at length to a private television channel, and it garnered a lot of positive response from the viewers. When I mentioned it to Rajeev (Ravi), he said it could be made into a film.”
Elaborating about the incident he said, “A jewelry store in Kasaragod was robbed, and clues led us to a village in Uttar Pradesh, a notorious thiruttu gramam (a village of thieves). We were told that 11 years ago when a police team tried to enter the village, it had kicked up a riot. Since we had the help of a couple of informants from the village, we could nab the thieves. At that time, I didn’t realise the quantum of risk we had undertaken. Later, I came to know that a police inspector from Tamil Nadu was shot dead when he and his team tried out a similar operation in that village.”
The movie will be a dashing crime thriller and will start rolling soon.
