Ace Malayalam director Lal Jose is venturing into ad film making for the first time in his career spanning more than 12 years. He roped in former Miss India and actor-turned-politician Nafisa Ali and model-turned-actor Adhiti to appear in his maiden ad film, shot recently in Thrippunithura Hill Palace for a leading gold jewellery brand.
Talking to a leading newspaper from Ottapalam, Lal Jose said, “I have been getting several offers for directing commercials from a very long time. Since I was busy with films, I could not take it seriously. If I had to tell you honestly, even this time around, my next project with Dileep and Kunchacko Boban got postponed and I had lot of time in between. It was my longtime friend and my former associate Ratish Ambat who suggested I give it a try.”
Ratish is popular in ad circles and recently made a commercial with Vikram. Apparently, the commercial ad is produced by Ratish. Lal Jose’s favourite Vidyasagar has composed the music and C.R. Vinodh handles the camera.
