Priyadarshan, the senior filmmaker is a great admirer of Fahadh Faasil, the National award-winning actor. The director has heaped praises over Fahadh in most of his recent interviews, and has always stated that he is his favourite from the younger generation. Recently, Priyadarshan stated that Fahadh Faasil is the most natural actor of Malayalam cinema, after Mohanlal.
The Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham director opened up about the Trance actor, in the recent interview given to The News Minute. 'Fahadh Faasil is the best among the current crop. Some of his performances are so natural and he can pull off even humour with ease. Perhaps he is the most natural actor in Malayalam after Mohanlal.', said Priyadarshan.
Fahadh Faasil, who is unarguably one of the finest acting talents Malayalam cinema has ever produced, is yet to join hands with Priyadarshan for a project. As we all know, the senior filmmaker prefers to associate with his best buddy Mohanlal for almost every project he directs in Malayalam. However, we really hope to watch a film by Priyadarshan-Fahadh Faasil duo very soon.
Trance, the last outing of Fahadh Faasil which was released in February 2020, had earned mixed reviews from the audiences and emerged as a below-average box office success. But Fahadh has delivered one of the finest performances in his career so far in the movie, which is directed by Anwar Rasheed.
The actor will be next seen in the upcoming political drama Malik, which marks his second collaboration with the popular editor-filmmaker Mahesh Narayanan. Fahadh Faasil is appearing as the titular character Sulaiman Malik in the movie, which is said to be based on real events. He is also joining hands with newcomer Akhil Sathyan, the son of senior filmmaker Sathyan Anthikad, for a comedy entertainer. The shooting of the project is expected to resume once the lockdown ends.
