When ‘Minnal Murali’ director told Guru Somasundaram to watch ‘Joker’

Mumbai: Actor Guru Somasundaram, who has been garnering praise for his role of the antagonist Shibu in the Malayalam superhero film “Minnal Murali”, says director Basil Joseph wanted him to watch the Hollywood film “Joker” to get into the skin of his character.

A self-confessed fan of the American superhero genre, Somasundaram said eventually he chose to skip the Joaquin Phoenix-starrer as he didn’t want to be influenced by the 2019 film.

“Minnal Murali” narrates the tale of two starkly different ordinary men who after being struck by lightning on the same fateful night gain superhuman abilities — Tovino Thomas’ Jaison becomes the titular hero and Shibu (Somasundaram) turns villain.
