In a recent Instagram post, filmmaker Alphonse Putran made a surprising announcement about his career. He disclosed that he had been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and, as a result, intended to bring his theater and film career to a close. Although he expressed a desire not to be a burden to anyone, he did mention his plan to continue creating short films, songs, and possibly work on OTT platforms. Alphonse emphasized his reluctance to give up on filmmaking, but circumstances had left him with no other viable option. His social media post was later removed, but screenshots had already made their way across various social platforms.
Alphonse Putran is best known for his 2013 film “Neram,” featuring Nivin Pauly, and the highly acclaimed 2015 movie “Premam.” He had also announced a Malayalam project titled “Patt,” and his most recent release was “Gold,” starring Prithviraj. Additionally, Alphonse was actively involved in a Tamil film titled “Gift,” with music composed by Ilayaraja. Previously, Alphonse had revealed the cast of the film, which included artists such as Sandy, Kovai Sarala, Sahana Sarvesh, Mahalakshmi Sudarshan, Sampath Raj, Rahul, Charlie, Rachel Rebecca, Crawford, Gopalan Palakkad, Cycle Money, and others. The film was expected to be a smaller-scale production.
