News were in air stating that Fahad Fazil is all set to share the screen space with Mammootty once again with the movie Manglish. But, now the director of the film, Salaam Bappu has slammed these reports to be fake.
Salaam Bappu says that Fahad is not a part of the movie. Mammootty plays the lead role in the film and the female lead will be Caroline Bech, an English actress.
The director says, "Manglish is a story set around beaches. Often in sea-surrounded locales, there will be beaches where we get to see extreme opposite images - those occupied by the local fishermen community with all its rawness; and an adjacent, artificial one that caters mainly to the tourists. The cultural differences are strikingly conspicuous in such a set up. Mammootty plays a tharakan - someone who auctions fish at the beach."
"Caroline Bech will be playing the role of a tourist in the film, who knows only English and lands up on the beach during a vacation. The movie revolves around the association of Caroline and the thakaran, which will have many fun moments," says Salaam.
Meanwhile, Fahad Fazil has One By Two, Maniyarayile Jinn, Bangalore Days, Cartoon, Kalyanam and many more movies lined up, which are under filming.
