Fahadh Faasil and Nadiya Moidu to play siblings in Mahesh Narayanan’s next
We had recently reported about Mahesh Narayanan and Fahadh Faasil reuniting for a short segment in the upcoming Netflix anthology based on MT Vasudevan Nair’s stories. Said to be based on MT’s short story Sherlock, the film will have Fahadh and veteran actress Nadiya Moidu as the leads.
Sherlock is about a youngster named Balu arriving in Canada to find work. He stays with his sister and husband at their place. The couple also has a pet cat named Sherlock. The core narrative is centred around Balu and Sherlock, the cat. While Fahadh essays Balu’s role, Nadiya will be seen as his sister.
The makers are apparently planning to start shoot in January in Canada. Planned as a 10-part project, the anthology has films helmed by directors like Priyadarshan, Shyamaprasad, Santosh Sivan, Jayaraj, Rathish Ambat and Lijo Jose Pellissery. The cast includes the likes of Mohanlal, Mammootty, Parvathy Thiruvoth, Indrajith Sukumaran, Ann Augustine, Aparna Balamurali, Sshivada, Biju Menon, Indrans and Nedumudi Venu among others.
