Malayalam actor Suresh Gopi plays a doctor in Director Shankar's 'I'. A 60-member film unit, including Vikram, Amy Jackson and Santhanam, left for China on Sept.23 for a long schedule of shooting. Suresh Gopi has not joined the unit as scenes to be shot in China do not need him. So, he is staying back.
Some scenes featuring him as a doctor were shot in Chennai a few days ago. More of the scenes on him are to be filmed only in November.
With the lead actors away in China, Suresh Gopi is said to be undergoing Ayurveda therapy for rejuvenation to look fresh for the doctor's role in the film.
Interestingly, Suresh Gopi has already acted along with Vikram in some Malayalam films.
