It was announced some time ago that Fahadh Faasil would be sharing screen space with 23 real cops for his upcoming film Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. Director Dileesh Pothen wanted to cast real policemen and had auditioned hundreds of cops interested in donning the greasepaint before finally deciding on 23 cops, say sources close to the film unit.
In fact, many cops evinced interest in the project but only a few were selected based on their performance in the audition. The story required 23 cops and the filmmaker felt that only real cops could do full justice.
The shooting of Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum is on in Sheni, Kasaragod. And from what we hear, the cops have really impressed the entire unit, including the director and Fahadh Faasil.
The film also stars Suraj Venjaramoodu, Soubin Shahir, Alencier Ley Lopez, and Nimisha. Produced by Sandeep Senan and Aneesh M Thomas, the film has music by Bijibal. Rajeev Ravi is handling the camera for Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum.
