Fahad Fazil, a lead face in the new generation actors in Malayalam, has walked out of the upcoming movie Iyer In Pakistan, which is directed by debutante Fazil. The young actor has rejected this much-hyped project stating that the screenplay is not up to his expected mark. Now, Unni Mukundan will essay the lead role, which was to be played by Fahad.
Iyer In Pakistan is produced by M Mani under the banner of Aroma Productions. Earlier, Fahad Fazil had signed an agreement with the producer to star in the film. He had even done a photo shoot for it. But it is reported that Fahad is not happy with the screenplay of the movie. So he is said to have met the producer and told him about his opting out of the project. Meanwhile, he has reportedly agreed to do a film for the banner in the future.
It is also reported that director Fazil has approached Unni Mukundan for the role in Iyer In Pakistan. Unni is said to be impressed with the story and has accepted to play the role. Currently, he is busy with Ithu Pathiramanal, Orissa, Samrajyam II: Son of Alexander, Kaattum Mazhayum and D Company. He is expected to take up Iyer In Pakistan after wrapping up his present projects.
Iyer in Pakistan would feature Jagathy's daughter Sreelakshmy and Sanusha in the female leads. It should be recalled here that Unni Mukundan had earlier replaced Prithviraj in Mallu Singh that propelled to star status and his first hit. It should be seen whether Iyer In Pakistan would create same magic for the actor.
