“Njan Marykutty” directed by Ranjith Sankar is the upcoming movie of versatile actor Jayasurya. Jayasurya’s female getup in the movie has already been noted. The costumes of his female appearance also was praised by many.
It was Jayasurya’s wife Saritha who designed the costumes for the character. She runs a boutique in the name ‘Saritha Jayasurya Designer Studio’.
What makes all curious now is a hoarding erected in Kochi. Saritha has used the female getup of her husband to promote her designer studio. Jayasurya as Marykutty wearing saree is featured on the hoarding.
Director Ranjith Sankar himself shared the picture of the hoarding with a caption that tells ‘The first wife in the world who made her husband wear female costume to promote her shop’. However, the post received huge response from viewers within a short time.
Saritha had also designed costumes for Jayasurya in some of his previous films. She debuted in costume designing by crafting the costumes for Jayasurya in the film ‘Su Su Sudhi Valmeekam’. Later a kurta designed by her for ‘Pretham’ also was noticed by fashion lovers.
But, the biggest hit was the double-coloured dhoti she designed for ‘Aadu 2’. The unique dhoti was named after Jayasurya’s character Shaji Pappan and was trending in both within and outside Kerala.
