Vineeth Mohan didn’t think twice about giving up his job with Syndicate Bank for acting, his passion since childhood, when he was offered the role of  Moonga Kuttan in Jayasoorya-starrer ‘Aadu Oru Bheekarajeeviyaanu’.

And, so far his decision seems to be in the right direction and the actor will soon be seen in a meaty role in ‘Adi Kapyare Kootamani’, a comic ride that will hit theatres this Christmas. Vineeth, who plays Koshy in the movie by debutant John Varghese, says he  plays the ‘serious’ guy among the foursome. “I play the serious guy in the wild gang. It will be a funny movie but with a strong suspense element,” says Vineeth.

The movie is about four guys who have a gala time at ‘Lord Valous’ Hostel until a young woman played by Namitha Pramod evades their private kingdom.

Mukesh, who plays warden Father Alfred Kattuvilayi, plays another significant character.

Pitted against experienced comic actors may be quite nerve-wracking, but Vineeth states that he received a lot of support from Aju Varghese, the most  experienced of the lot. The actor says he values it a lot because his journey wasnt an easy one.

“It was a struggle. I had approached a director seeking a role. He told me that there were many fresh faces dying for a start in the industry. He dismissed me and told me to find a job. That’s when I decided to put my acting dreams on halt and started focusing on getting a job. But, Vijay Babu, who also produces Adi Kapyare Kootamani, gave me the break in ‘Aadu....”.

The movie is being produced under the banner of Friday Film House and Carnival Motion Pictures. Shaan Rahman has composed the soundtrack and background score for the film.

Vineeth has also completed shooting for ‘Akashavani’ which will hit theatres this January. In the movie, he plays Kavya Madhavan’sbrother.
