Director Marthandan, who has donned the director’s robes for the Mammootty starrer Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus, released in 2013, will be directing Fahadh Faasil. The director’s last film was Pavada, released last year. The film starred Prithviraj, Anoop Menon, Asha Sarath and Miya George in the lead roles.
The Fahadh Faasil starrer is touted to be a complete comedy entertainer. To be released with the tagline 'Chiri Unlimited', the film will be scripted by Joji Thomas, who had written the hit film Vellimonga. It is said that Fahadh will be speaking the Kannur dialect in the movie and is working on mastering it to get into the skin of the character.
The project was supposed to go on to the floors last year but the team decided to postpone it to 2017 as they wanted to perfect the script. The film will be produced by Weekend Blockbusters which has given hit films like Bangalore Days and Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol. With the pre-production on, the team is busy finalising the female lead, supporting cast and technicians. More details are likely to emerge soon.
