National awad winning director Jayaraj is going to

(mercy killing). This entire film would be shot in
5 continuous hours. Jayaraj arranged a press meet
on this eve. Suresh Gopi and Mamatha Mohan Das were
also present. Here are the excerpts -
Jayaraj said, "This film deals with the
controversial subject of Euthanasia (mercy killing).
This film is about the last one and half an hour of
a patient's life who is going to undergo mercy killing.
We would start the shoot at 10 am on 18th of December
and complete entire shooting with in 5 continuous
hours. Oregon Stage of USA is the only place where
mercy killing is legal. Hence we took the backdrop
of the film as Oregon State. Ramoji Film City is providing
excellent facilities for this film. I visited Oregon
State to study about euthanasia a couple of years
back. Suresh Gopi dons the challenging role of patient.
Mamatha Mohandas is playing the role of hero's wife.
There would be lots of foreign artists in the film.
I am aiming this film for Cannes Film Festival."
Suresh Gopi said, "We are targeting world
market with this film. Subject of euthanasia is a
universally relevant one. Playing the role of patient
who is going to die in 1 and half hour is very challenging
one. I need to go through serious of complex emotions
when I meet different people. We are going to shoot
the film in five consecutive hours because these intense
emotions have time track attached to them. I will
have to imagine and fantasize the state of mind of
the patient in order to perform the role. Currently
we are doing rehearsals for the film in RFC."
Mamatha Mohan Das said, "This is my 3rd film
as an actress. I was paired up with Mammootty for
my 2nd film. I am feeling excited to work with an
accomplished actor like Suresh Gopi in my 3rd film."
