Gautham Menon, the renowned filmmaker recently made his Malayalam acting debut with Trance, the Fahadh Faasil-starrer. Even though the movie received mixed reviews and emerged as a below-average grosser, lead actor Fahadh Faasil was highly praised for his exceptional performance. Recently, co-star Gautham Menon also revealed how impressed he is with the National award-winning actor's performance in the movie.
In the recent interview given to The Hindu, the senior filmmaker revealed that he is highly impressed with Fahadh Faasil and intends to direct him very soon. Interestingly, Gautham Menon has already prepared a script for Fahadh Faasil and is intending to have a narrative session with him once the all India lockdown comes to an end.
According to the director, Fahadh Faasil has promised him that he will approach him for the narration very soon, as that is the way the actor works. Gautham Menon is hopeful that the project will materialize very soon and states that he is ready to wait for the talented actor.
Earlier, it was announced that Gautham Menon is planning to direct Prithviraj Sukumaran, the multi-faceted talent of Malayalam cinema, in a Tamil-Telugu-Kannada trilingual. Interestingly, the project was a multi-starrer that had some of the most popular actors of the South Indian cinema in the lead roles.
However, the promising project never materialised due to the busy schedules of the lead actors. But the sources suggest that Gautham Menon has not dropped his ambitious project, but has just put it in the backburner for the time being. Later, Prithviraj has also confirmed that the project is not shelved, but is delayed.
Fahadh Faasil, who is one of the most sought-after actors of the contemporary Malayalam cinema, will next be seen in Mahesh Narayanan's political thriller, Malik. The actor is playing a very challenging character in the film, which will feature him in four different avatars.
