In Jagame Thandhiram, Malayalam actor Joju George plays Sivadoss, a gangster in London.
Talking about how he fetched a solid role in Jagame Thandhiram, Joju George says" I have been a huge Karthik Subbaraj fan. After seeing Pizza I was trying to meet Karthik Subbaraj, but I didn't get a chance. I came to the Malayalam industry and was doing characters here. Finally, I got a chance to meet him through Vivek Harshan and Dimal Dennis, who is the editor of Jagame Thandiram. Karthik asked me to come for auditions because my role is a pivotal one in the film. He narrated a scene to me and asked me to act. I acted it out and said the dialogues in broken Tamil. He simply smiled at me, and I was so happy”
Talking about sharing screen space with James Cosmo of Game of Thrones fame, Joju said: "I knew my opponent (in the film) would be James Cosmo Sir who is a big Hollywood actor. He is the first Hollywood actor I have seen in person - I live for the excitement that life gives, to act with James Cosmo was a huge opportunity for me”. James Cosmo's character name in the film is Peter.
Jagame Thandhiram is all set to be premiered on Netflix on June 18.
