Joju essays the role of powerful gangster Sivadoss. The actor will be making his debut within the Tamil industry with Jagame Thandhiram and is super excited about the release of the film.  Joju has always been an ardent fan of Karthik Subbaraj and was elated to be a part of this film. 

Talking about Karthik Subbaraj, Joju said, ‘ I have been a huge Karthik Subbaraj fan. After seeing Pizza I was trying to meet Karthik Subbaraj, but I didn’t get a chance. I came to the Malayalam industry and was doing characters here. Finally I got a chance to meet him  through Vivek Harshan and Dimal Dennis, who is the editor of Jagame Thandiram.Karthik asked me to audition,  since it was a huge character. He narrated a scene to me and asked me to act.  I acted it out and said the dialogues in broken Tamil. He simply smiled at me, and I was so happy’.
