Joju George replaces Biju Menon in Fahadh Faasil-Mahesh Nayaranan's Malik
This character was supposed to be played by Biju Menon, who opted out due to scheduling conflicts
Even as the shoot of director Mahesh Narayanan’s second film with Fahadh Faasil is underway, it has come to light that Joju George has been cast in an important role. This character was supposed to be played by Biju Menon, who opted out due to scheduling conflicts.
The big-budget film, titled Malik, is reportedly based on true events and will see Fahadh sporting four different looks. Nimisha Sajayan plays the female lead. Vinay Forrt, Indrans and Dileesh Pothan are said to be among the cast along with yesteryear actor Jalaja in an important role. Sanu Varghese, who shot Take Off, is behind the camera.
Interestingly, Fahadh and Joju are starring together in two other films: Thankam, from the producers of Kumbalangi Nights, and an untitled project produced by production controller Badusha. Joju’s next release is Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s Chola, coming out on December 6
