Shyamaprasad directorial Hey Jude is soaring to new heights at the box office with each passing day. The movie starring Nivin Pauly, Trisha, Siddique, Neena Kurup and Vijay Menon among others has been successful in impressing the audience a great deal. Meanwhile, veteran actor Pratap Pothen shared that that success of the movie is bittersweet for him as he was initially part of the project and later opted out as he fell sick during the shoot. He also revealed that he had ‘role of a lifetime’ in the movie. Presumably, Prathap Pothen was Shyamaprasad's first choice for neuropsychologist Dr. Sebastian which was essayed by Vijay Menon in the movie.
