Dulquer Salmaan starrer Kammatipaadam, the film which hit the theatres in 2016, is one such Malayalam movie of the recent times, that received extremely positive reviews from all quarters.
The making style, the performances of actors like Dulquer Salmaan, Vinayakan etc., were much praised and rightly, Vinayakan even went on to win the Kerala State Film Award For The Best Actor for his performance in the film.
But, not many know that Fahadh Faasil was first approached for this movie by Rajeev Ravi. Actor Fahadh Faasil himself opened up about this in a recent interview given to a popular magazine.
Reportedly, before the filming of Annayum Rasoolum, Fahadh Faasil was offered both Annayum Rasoolum and Kammatipaadam, but the actor chose the former movie. He was offered the role of Krishnan, originally played by Dulquer Salmaan, but the actor was interested in the role of Rasool, so he chose to do Annayum Rasoolum.
He stated that he opted not to select Kammatipaadam since he hasn't seen the Kochi of the past, as shown in the movie. Moreover, he also feels that he couldn't have done justice to the character like Dulquer Salmaan did.
Meanwhile, Fahadh Faasil is having a good outing in Mollywood, with his recent release Take Off fetching extremely good reviews.
