Arunachal actor Kendy Zirdo stars in Malayalam movie

Kendy Zirdo, an Arunachal actor, has acted in a pivotal character in Android Kunjappan Version 5.25– a recently released sci-fi Malayalam comedy-drama movie.

This is her first venture into the South Indian movie industry.

“This is the first time I am working in a South Indian movie. I have never watched any South Indian movie earlier,” Zirdo said while interacting with the media.

In the movie, she will be seen essaying the character of Hitori- a Japanese-Malayali girl who is the love interest of Subramaniam, a character portrayed by popular Soubin Shahir.

“I got to know about this film through filmmaker Partha Borgohain and thought of giving it a try,” she further said.

“I appeared for my very first audition in two different locations – one in an empty space, and another in a room that had a table and chair,” she added.

“I had to tell my lines in Malayalam, walk around and act. I got lucky, and ended up with my first film,” she further said.

Kendy Zirdo belongs to the Galo community Arunachal Pradesh.

In 2017,  child actor from Arunachal Pradesh Matin Rey Tangu won everyone’s heart with his performance in the 2017 Bollywood movie Tubelight starring Salman Khan.

Bijou Thaangjam, who hails from Manipur, has also bagged pivotal character-roles in several Bollywood movies like Mary Kom, Shivaay, and Jagga Jasoos to name a few.
