While stars from Bollywood are hitting the political trail, the film industry in Kerala is witnessing a reverse migration.

Rajmohan Unnithan, a leader expelled from the Congress, has signed on the dotted line to act with Mammooty in Shaji Kailas' new film Brand. It is being said that Unnithan's media conference after being expelled from the party, telecast live on local news channels, caught the director's attention and the latter found his villain!

But Unnithan is playing safe. He has requested the director to etch his character with care, so as not to tarnish his political image.
