Fahadh Faasil as Kallan Kuttan in Thankam?
Last year, it was announced that Fahadh Faasil, Dileesh Pothan and Joju George would be teaming up for a film named ‘Thankam’. National award winner Syam Pushkaran is scripting the film and Saheed Arafat of ‘Theeram’ fame is directing it. Shoot was supposed to kick-start in April, but due to the lockdown and other restrictions, it has been put on hold.
As confirmed by the makers, ‘Thankam’ will be a crime drama. Interestingly, Fahadh Faasil will be seen playing a thief’s role in the film. It is said that he is essaying a character named Kuttappan Thankamani aka Kallan Kuttan. It is worth a mention that, Fahadh’s remarkable performance as a small-time thief in ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’ had earned him a National award. In ‘Thankam’, we can expect to see a different style of performance from him.
Syam Pushkaran, Dileesh Pothan and Fahadh are also involved in the production of ‘Thankam’. They are jointly producing it under their banners of Working Class Hero and Fahadh Faasil and Friends. The trio last produced the widely acclaimed ‘Kumbalangi Nights’.
