Rumours had been abuzz for a while that Priyadarshan has roped in Fahadh Faasil for his next film, and that Suriya and Akshay Kumar will be playing the respective characters in the Tamil and Hindi versions of the film. However, the director has now confirmed to us that he is indeed planning a Malayalam film with Fahadh though it is yet to be confirmed fully. Also, he hasn’t yet thought about making it in Hindi or Tamil, he added. “Yes, I have committed to a Malayalam film with Fahadh but it is in the planning stage and not confirmed yet,” he said. More details of the film are yet to be revealed.
Priyadarshan’s last outing in Malayalam, Geethanjali, which starred Mohanlal and Keerthi Suresh, bombed at the box office. This will be the director’s first outing with Fahadh, and even with any of the young crop of stars, as most of his recent Malayalam films have starred Mohanlal.
