A few days ago, the title of Fahadh Faasil’s upcoming film was revealed to be Athiran and now the filmmakers are coming out with some other interesting details. The film’s writer PF Mathews has confirmed that Fahadh plays a doctor in the film. He has been quoted by the Silverscreen as saying, “It’s a thriller set in a mental hospital in a hill station and Fahadh Faasil essays the role of doctor.” On the other characters in the film, he says, “Sai Pallavi plays one of the two lead characters in the movie. Prakash Raj appears in a pivotal role, although it is not a full-fledged one. Atul Kulkarni plays a character that appears throughout the movie.”

A major portion of the film was shot at the picturesque locations in Ooty.

The shooting of Athiran, directed by debutant filmmaker Vivek, was wrapped up recently and it is currently in the postproduction stage. The technical crew of this film includes music director Jayahari for soundtrack and Ghibran to score the background music. With the post production on, the team is looking for a release in April this year.

Fahadh’s last film release was Kumbalangi Nights. The film, directed by Madhu Narayanan, was scripted by Syam Pushkaran. The actor has won much praise for his role as a creepy character sending chills down your spine just by smiling widely and asking many questions.
