Senior Malayalam actor Jagathy Sreekumar, who has been confined indoors following a major car accident in 2012, will soon face the arclights again.

His son Rajkumar told mediapersons here on Tuesday that his father would act in an ad film for a water theme park in what the family members expect to be the beginning of a possible return of the hugely popular actor in Malayalam to the big screen.

The switch-on of the ad film shooting will be held at the water theme park in Thrissur on February 27. Mr. Rajkumar said that his family members will be part of the ad film.

“Doctors have advised us that bringing him in front of the camera would be a major boost in his recovery process. He has always loved cinema and cherished being in the company of actors and technicians,” he said.

In a career spanning over four decades, Jagathy Sreekumar had acted in over 1,100 films.

Besides rated as one of the finest comedians ever in Malayalam, Jagathy Sreekumar had portrayed wide range of memorable character roles in several movies.
