Fahadh Faasil reunites with Take Off director for Malik
Fahadh will be joined by Biju Menon, Nimisha Sajayan, Vinay Forrt, Dileesh Pothan, and yesteryear actor Jalaja
Director Mahesh Narayanan made his debut with one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2017, Take Off. Starring Fahadh Faasil and Parvathy, the film garnered five Kerala State Awards and three National awards. Now, Mahesh is teaming up again with Fahadh for another film titled Malik. Fahadh will be joined by Biju Menon, Nimisha Sajayan, Vinay Forrt, Dileesh Pothan, and yesteryear actor Jalaja in the film.
Reportedly being made with a budget of Rs 25 crore, the film started rolling today at Fort Kochi. Anto Joseph, who was one of the co-producers of Take Off, is backing the film under the banner of Anto Joseph Film Company.
Mahesh, who began in the industry as a film editor, will be taking care of the editing department as well. Sanu John Varghese, who also shot Take Off, will serve as the director of photography. Sanu has previously worked on Hindi films like Badhai Ho and Karthik Calling Karthik. Sushin Shyam (Kumbalangi Nights, Virus) has been roped in as the composer.
Fahadh recently wrapped up his work in Anwar Rasheed's hotly-anticipated big-budget film Trance. Nimisha, on the other hand, has Rajeev Ravi's Thuramukham, Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's Chola, Lal Jose's 41, Vidhu Vincent's Stand Up, and Siddarth Bharathan's Jinn in the pipeline.
Both Nimisha and Biju are part of Thuramukham and 41. Biju is also part of Vellimoonga director Jibu Jacob's next film Aadhyarathri.
Meanwhile, Vinay Forrt, who was last seen in Thamaasha, will next be seen in Lijo Jose Pellissery's as-yet-untitled follow-up to Jallikattu, Shambu Purushothaman's Paapam Cheyyathavar Kalleriyatte, and Manoj Nair's Vaarthakal Ithuvare.
