No more commercial films, says Jayaraj

Jayaraj's 'Ottaal' had become the first Malayalam film ever to win the Golden Pheasant Award at the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) this year. The film was also a stiff competitor for the Golden Peacock Award at the International Film Festival of India 2015. The director says that his commercial ventures have turned out to be setbacks for him and he has realized that audience expects socially relevant cinema from him. He adds that his responsibility as a film maker has increased after the historic win at IFFK 2015.
