KOCHI: As the Hindi film Paa, depicting Amitabh Bachchan as the crippled son of Abhishek Bachchan, hits the silver screen this week, Malayalam movie-goers will have an opportunity to watch another unique father-son relationship. Actors Jayaram and Ajayakumar are donning the roles in the film My Big father to be released on Friday.

Ajayakumar, known as ‘Guinness’ Pakru, who enthralled film buffs with his brilliant performance in Adbhuthadweep, a Malayalam film depicting dwarfs, is all set to make his mark again, according to the film production team. “The film is a family entertainer with sentimental roots,” says Jayaram. Who is the real star in the film? “It’s Ajayan,” he says, holding the short-statured actor Ajaykumar close to his chest. Mahesh P.Srinivas, who had directed Changathiopoocha, is the director of My Big Father. “It was a challenging role. My paternal feelings did crop up during the acting sessions,” says Ajaykumar, who is the father of a one-year-old daughter in real life. The actor who has entered Guinness book of records, is currently acting in another film Body guard.
