Director Vinayan is often known to be one who promotes fresh talents through his films. Several prominent actors have made their debuts through his films. Similarly, it was Vinayan who provided a huge breakthrough for actor Jayasurya through the film 'Ooomappenninu Uriyaada Payyan. Recently, the director opened up about how Jayasurya made it to his film.

"I had initially planned to cast Dileep as the film's hero. However, Dileep was too busy with his films and his dates clashed with my film. That is when I told the producer that it would be better to cast a newcomer as the hero. The producer agreed to this. It was my wife and son Vishnu who then told me about Jayasurya, a youngster who used to do some shows on television. Later, I met him and narrated the script to him. This is how Jayasurya became a film star. What is even more interesting about his debut is that he had no dialogues in the film as he played a mute. The film went on to become a huge hit and Jayasurya soon became a big star." Vinayan said.
