David in Malik is my most favorite among the characters I’ve played so far: Vinay Forrt
Vinay Forrt is very selective these days as he carefully chooses his projects. This year, he has got two big films coming up — ‘Malik’ and the Lijo Jose Pellissery directorial ‘Churuli’. The actor has pinned high hopes on both the films. In Malik, he plays a character named David. According to Vinay Forrt, David is his most favorite among the characters he has played so far.
‘Malik’ directed by Mahesh Narayanan is actually based on a true incident that occurred few years back in Kerala. The story revolves around a sensitive coastal area where there was a resistance against this constant threat of displacement of a minority community.
Fahadh Faasil plays the lead character of Sulaiman Malik who was like a leader of the community. Vinay Forrt’s character David is a grey shaded one and he believes that it is very different from what he has done before. Since the story goes through various timelines, both the actors will be seen in looks ranging from their mid 20s to 50s.
The cast also includes Nimisha Sajayan, Dileesh Pothan, Indrans, Sudhi Koppa, Chandhunath, yesteryear actress Jalaja, Maala Parvathy and many others. The film, which is being made on a budget of close to Rs 30 crores is scheduled to release in April.
