Fahadh Faasil and Anwar Rasheed, the actor-director duo's much-awaited project Maniyarayile Jinnu has been shelved. The team hasn't revealed the reason behind the shelve but confirmed that Anwar will direct Fahadh in another project soon.
Maniyarayile Jinnu was a highly anticipated project, as it was expected to bring back Nazriya Nazim to the silver screen. But now, it is almost confirmed that Nazriya has no plans to make a comeback in the near future.
Anwar Rasheed has earlier associated with Fahadh Faasil, in his production debut Bangalore Days. He has directed Fahadh in his critically acclaimed segment Amy, of the highly appreciated anthology movie 5 Sundarikal.
The director has been staying away from his direction career since the last few years, to concentrate on his production career. His second production venture Premam emerged as the second highest ever grosser of Malayalam Cinema.
Fahadh Faasil, on the other hand, is going through a low phase in his career, with no successful film in past two years. The Anwar Rasheed project is expected to be a saving grace in the talented actor's career, and bring him back to the success track.
