Amala Paul’s elder brother, Abijith Paul, who made a fleeting appearance in Sathyan Anthikkad’s Oru Indian Pranayakatha, will play a detective in a Mohanlal starrer. “I am in talks right now. Nothing has been confirmed yet,” said Abhijit, who is a sailor by profession. It was in fact Vikram who inspired him to take up acting. Then of course, his sister’s stardom has also been a major influence. She often calls him the “real actor in their family.” He has also heard a few scripts in Tamil, but is yet to sign on the dotted line.
