After an eight-year hiatus, Veteran actor Kyaw Thu is staging a comeback by starring in a film entitled “Professor Dr Seik Phwar”.

Based on a novel by the late Min Theinkha and directed by Khin Saw Myo, the film features an all-star cast including Yan Aung, Ye Aung, Min Oo, San Yati Moe Myint, May Myat Noe and May Pa Chi. Kyaw Thu plays the lead role of Professor Dr Seik Phwar.

“It’s been a long time since I left the entertainment industry. I have only been doing philanthropic work so I didn’t feel like working in entertainment at all. I decided to do this film because of its social cause. Just the same, the character is engaged in some philanthropic work. The character suits my hair and beard,” said Kyaw Thu.

“This is a good novel. It portrays the work of philanthropists trying to better the lives of downtrodden people. That’s why I picked this film. Ko Kyaw Thu has been carrying out philanthropic work so he is well suited to this role. I have selected suitable people for other characters. I believe the audience will get satisfaction from the film,” said Khin Saw Tint.

The film will be shot in Yangon, Pathein and other towns.
