Gokul Suresh is in talks to play the antagonist's role in Fahadh Faasil's upcoming film Karate Chandran. While speculations have been doing the rounds for a while now, the Mudhugauv actor himself confirmed it in a recent interview with CE. However, he refused to divulge further details as the project is still in its early stages. It is backed by Bhavana Studios, headed by Fahadh, Dileesh Pothan and Syam Pushkaran.

Karate Chandran marks the directorial debut of Roy, who has been assisting Dileesh Pothan ever since Maheshinte Prathikaaram (2016). It is scripted by Kerala Sahitya Akademi Award-winning writers S Hareesh and Vinoy Thomas. The two had earlier collaborated on Churuli (2021), the screenplay of which was penned by Hareesh based on Vinoy's story.

Gokul was recently seen in Gaganachari, a dystopian science-fiction mockumentary, alongside Anarkali Marikar, Ganesh Kumar, and Aju Varghese. A first such attempt in Malayalam, the film has fetched a largely positive response, particularly among the youth audience. It is now gearing up for release in major cities across India.
