Trance, the upcoming Fahadh Faasil-Nazriya Nazim starrer directed by Anwar Rasheed is one of the most anticipated projects of Malayalam cinema in 2020. Recently, Trance had made headlines after the movie was sent for revising by the censor board. As per the latest updates, the Fahadh Faasil starrer will not hit the theatres on February 14, as expected.
Recently, lead actor Fahadh and the rest of the team members confirmed that the release of Trance has been postponed, through their official social media pages. The movie is now slated to hit the theatres on February 20, Thursday. Fahadh Faasil also revealed that the film has bagged a U/A certificate from the censor board, through his post.
The officials of the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), Thiruvananthapuram had referred Trance to the revising committee, as they had issues with an 8-minute-long sequence in the movie. Initially, the team suggested to completely remove or blur the entire sequence, but director Anwar Rasheed and his team were totally against the idea.
Later, CBFC Kerala sent the movie to the censor board revising committee in Mumbai. However, the revising committee issued a U/A certificate to the film without a single cut, to the much excitement of the team members. Expectations are riding high on Trance, which marks the comeback of Anwar Rasheed after a long gap of 8 years.
Fahadh Faasil and Nazriya Nazim, the star couple is sharing the screen in Trance for the first time after they tied the knot. Fahadh is appearing in the role of Viju Prasad, a motivational speaker in the movie, which features Nazriya as Esther Lopez. Reportedly, the star couple is appearing in never-seen-before avatars in the movie.
Gautham Menon, the popular Tamil filmmaker will make his Malayalam debut with Trance as the lead antagonist. Amal Neerad, the renowned cinematographer-filmmaker handles the cinematography of the project, which is produced by Anwar Rasheed himself, for Anwar Rasheed Entertainment.
