The actor himself shared the news and photos on his Facebook page on Tuesday, labelling it as one of the most awaited moments in his life.

Sarath, who was a theatre artist, became a mainstream actor through Lijo Jose Pellissery's critically acclaimed Angamaly Diaries, which presented 86 new faces to Mollywood. The actor's performance as Appani Ravi had earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

Sarath's next project is Jijo Antony's 'Pokkiri Simon', which stars Sunny Wayne in the lead role and the likes of Saiju Kurup, Jacob Gregory and Nedumudi Venu in supporting roles.
