Fahadh Faasil revealed that he rejects a film when he is unable to visualize that movie in his mind. He added that it is not an easy task and there have been instances when he has reached to the final decision at the last moment. He mentioned that the same thing had happened with Mani Ratnam's Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. The actor has stated that he tried to visualize the film in his mind till the last moment; but, unfortunately, he couldn't.
