Fahadh Faasil undergoes a stunning transformation for Malik!
‘Take Off’ director Mahesh Narayanan’s ambitious new film, ‘Malik’ is nearing the final stages of shoot. Anto Joseph Film Company is producing the film, which is being made on a budget of close to Rs 30 crores. Fahadh Faasil plays the lead role and the cast also includes actors like Joju George, Nimisha Sajayan and Vinay Forrt in major roles.
‘Malik’ scripted by director Mahesh himself is actually based on a true incident that occurred some years back in Kerala. It is conceived as a political thriller, centred around a sensitive coastal area where there was a resistance against the constant threat of displacement of a minority community.
Fahadh Faasil plays the lead character, Sulaiman, a person who was responsible for leading his community in their fight against injustice. We hear that his character is actually inspired from a real-life person. The actor will be appearing in multiple looks in the film and he has already lost over 10 kilos. Some leaked stills from the film’s location feature him in a nearly unrecognizable look.
‘Malik’ also has an efficient technical crew comprising of DOP Sanu John Varughese, composer Sushin Shyam, production desinger Santhosh Raman, action choreographer Lee Whittaker and sound designers Vishnu Govind-Sree Sankar of Sound Factory. Besides directing and scripting, Mahesh Narayanan is also editing the film.
