The Changing Face of Cinema: The Child Actor, Surya Kasibhatla, of Amazon Original Movie JALSA
Retaining the essence of a character by apt representation, Amazon Original JALSA is making the right noise once again. Gripping narrative, stellar performances by the star cast have really been loved by the audience, especially, the star performer of ‘Jalsa’, that people just couldn’t miss out on— Surya Kasibhatla.
“Jalsa” features a role of a child with cerebral palsy played by an actor with the same disability, in what the film’s director and cast call a rare sign of inclusivity in one of the world’s largest film industry.
The film talks deeply about the relationship of the mother and her son. And, Surya Kasibhatla, a 14-year-old from Texas, of Indian origin who has cerebral palsy, plays Balan’s son, which is being appreciated all across.
His performance has not just touched the heart of audiences, but has also been an inspiration for many.
Amazon Prime Video released the behind-the-scenes video that journeys through the process of learning and working with the cheerful Surya. The cast and crew of Jalsa were amazed and pleasantly surprised to see Surya wade his way through tough scenes with utmost dedication and charm.
Surya also shares, “I had a lot of fun working on this film and on the set. I just had a blast working with the team. Thank you for watching the video and see you in the movie.”
