“People tell me that I resemble several Malayalam directors in real life and it just so happened that Syam and Dileesh Nair, the writers of Salt n’ Pepper, were my roommates. I was the casting reference for the character of a director in the movie and when push came to shove they made me do the role! I enjoy acting in all kinds of roles; it’s only that I don’t get the time to do all what is offered to me,”adds Dileesh.
