Kuwait bans Jayasurya – Ranjith Sankar team’s Njan Marykutty
Jayasurya’s latest outing Njan Marykutty, written and directed by Ranjith Sankar, has been banned in Kuwait. The director himself revealed this through a twitter post. His post in the microblog reads, “Njan Marykutty banned in Kuwait. Not anybody's fault but just that it’s against rules there. Released today in UAE with an 18+ certificate. (Heartfelt thanks to National Media Council for granting permission) Running successfully in more than 100 screens 4th week all over India.”
Jayasurya plays the role of a transsexual in the film. This is the first Malayalam film that has a transwoman as a protagonist. The movie also features Jewel Mary, Jins Baskar, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Aju Varghese, Innocent and Joju George in important roles.
