Tovino Thomas: ‘I Am Not So Talentless That I Can Be Sidelined’

Actor Tovino Thomas, whose last release was the Mollywood film Oru Mexican Aparaatha, which opened to positive reviews, says he feels at home in the Malayalam film industry. In an interview with the Times of India, he said he does not feel insecure and cannot be easily sidelined. “I don’t believe I am so talentless that anyone can sideline me. I never had that insecurity. Sometimes you feel but it becomes a problem only when you overthink it and get bothered about it,” he said. 


The 28-year-old actor said that he had enough projects in hand for the next two years and that no one could take that away from him. He further said that many actors had come into the industry in the last four years and the talented people were still there. 

“Every year, close to 150 movies are released here and frankly there’s space for even more male leads. The industry is growing – in terms of budget, revenue and quality. The truth is that you now need more people to run the industry,” he said. 

His next release is Godha, which also stars Wamiqa Gabbi and Renji Panicker.
