Fahad Fazil, who was brimmed with movies for the year 2013, has been signed for his next movie for the year 2014. Directed by Novin Vasudev, the movie will see Fahad playing the role of an intellectual. It was earlier reported that Fahad will be essaying the role of a trapeze player in this untitled movie, but the director claims that Fahad will be playing a highbrow intellectual in his film.
Fahad will be essaying the role of Harinarayanan, who is a high talented personality. "Hari has acquired a doctorate at an early age and is a shooting champion as well, but he gets into big time gambling at a very early age. He starts frequenting casinos and soon gets embroiled into a game of life and death. A murder happens, which turns his life upside down," says Novin, the director, who is making his debut with this movie.
"The film will be based on a short story by NS Madhavan. It is still in the scripting stage, which is being done by T Arunkumar," says Novin. Rajeev Ravi will be handling the camera for this movie. Jayadev will do the sound recording. He had done it for Ram Leela, the Bollywood flick too. National award winner Issac Thomas Kottukapalli will be doing the BGM for the film. Prakash Barae is producing this film under the banner of Silicon Media. The locations of the movie include India-Nepal border, Las Vegas and Kochi.
Some parts of the film are to be shot in a village called Raxaul, near the Indo-Nepal border. "Raxaul is one of the infamous routes through which smuggling from China happens. Since it is cold there at certain times of the year, and Fahad is a busy actor, we have to work out schedules carefully," says Novin.
