Fazil planning to direct a movie with Fahadh in the lead
Veteran filmmaker Fazil has been away from the industry for over a decade now. He recently made a comeback, not as a director but as an actor in Prithviraj Sukumaran’s directorial debut ‘Lucifer’. He played a cameo role as Father Nedumbally in the movie. Though it was a brief role, it got noted by the audience.
Meanwhile, there have been reports about the director teaming up with megastar Mammootty for his comeback film. It was said that Siddique-Lal duo would be scripting the film. However, Fazil has dismissed these reports as baseless rumours. But he also added that he is planning to make a movie with his son Fahadh in the lead.
It’s worth a mention that it was Fazil who introduced his son to cinema through the film ‘Kaiyethum Doorath’, back in 2002. The movie was a big failure and Fahadh left his acting career halfway, but only to return back in style. Riding on a hattrick of superhit films, Fahadh is now among the most wanted actors in Malayalam. It will be interesting to see how Fazil directs his son this time around. The veteran is also producing his son’s upcoming movie to be directed by Dileesh Pothan.
