South Indian actress Revathy will star Miriam Chandy Menacherry’s Homestay Blues, which has been selected for this year’s Co-production Market at Film Bazaar.
Principal photography on the English and Malayalam-language film is expected to start in August 2014. Malayalam-actor Fahadh Faasil (Annayum Rasoolum) had already boarded the project.
Produced by Menacherry’s Filament Pictures and Mumbai-based Vedartha Entertainment, Homestay Blues revolves around a prodigal son who returns to his ancestral house in Kerala after a string of failures abroad. He decides to ride the tourism boom and convert the family mansion into a homestay for foreigners.
Menacherry earlier directed the documentary The Rat Race which was selected for more than a dozen international film festivals including International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam (IDFA) in 2011.
