I Came With The Sole Intention Of Becoming A Costume Designer In Films; Stephy Zaviour Opens Up About Her Directorial Debut

On the last day, the news came out that Stephy Zaviour, was going to be a director. Stephy Zaviour is the costume designer and winner of the state film award for notable Malayalam films like Ottu, Kaduva, Janaganamana, Adithattu, Aaraattu, Cold Case, and Guppy. Rajisha Vijayan and Sharafuddin will play the lead roles, and the script is written by Mahesh Gopal and Jai Vishnu. Stephy, who has been active in Malayalam cinema for the past seven years, talks about her directorial debut.

 
Stephy says that she did not expect to become a director. "To tell the truth, I came with the sole intention of becoming a costume designer in films. At that time, there was no plan to design the costume first and then direct the film. But the pose while working on the film looks very interesting, and we start getting involved. By the time I finished the first 5 or 8 films, I would read the script, go to comfortable locations, and start asking new questions. So, slowly, when I started liking movies, I started wanting to do movies," said Stephy Zaviour.
 
Stephy added that the film will be a complete family entertainer. “The movie will be a complete family-horror event. Family movies in Malayalam are all about giving identity to the stories. The plot of this movie is about a family. However, it is difficult to present a rarely heard story with humor,” Stephy added.
