Pratap Pothen heaps praise on Fahadh Faasil and Suraj Venjaramoodu
Over the last few years, Fahadh Faasil and Suraj Venjaramoodu have been consistently delivering good performances. The latter in particular had a great 2019 with his films like ‘Finals’, ‘Vikrithi’, ‘Android Kunjappan’ and ‘Driving Licence’ earning him numerous accolades. More recently, Fahadh stunned everyone with his stellar performance in ‘Trance’. Though the film earned mixed response, his performance was unanimously praised.
Veteran actor Pratap Pothen recently took to his social media handle to shower praise on Fahadh and Suraj. In a long note, Pothen has written that he loved both the films and was even more impressed by the lead actors. According to him, these are actors who own their roles and become the characters. They don’t need fan clubs to make them popular because their work is their worship.
