Fahadh Faasil’s upcoming film Malayakunju, directed by Sajimon Prabhakaran and scripted by Mahesh Narayanan, is slated to be released in late January or early February next year. The makers recently released the first look poster of the film, which has gone viral on social media. Speaking about the making of Malayakunju, director Sajimon Prabhakaran said in an interview that the story is “completely unique”, and that the entire film will be shot in Kerala. While he stated that no details about the project can be revealed at the moment, he pointed out that 'Malayankunju' is not Fahadh Faasil’s character’s name in the film. The team is in the process of finalizing the star cast for Malayankunju and will be revealing it soon, we hear. The technical crew of Malayakunju includes Sushin Shyam for music. Mahesh Narayanan, besides handling the script, will also be in charge of the cinematography and editing, with Arju Ben joining him in doing the edits.

Fahadh Faasil currently has his film Malik waiting for release. Malik is directed by Mahesh Narayanan, with the technical crew comprising Sanu John Varghese for cinematography, Sushin Shyam for music, Vishnu Govind and Sree Sankar for sound designing and Santosh Raman for production designing. While Malik is waiting for a theatrical release, Fahadh has completed shooting for Joji. We hear that the story is inspired by the classical play Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Interestingly, Fahadh Faasil will be teaming with the crew of his previous release Maheshinte Prathikaaram -- Dileesh Pothen as the director and Syam Pushkaran as the scriptwriter-- for Joji. The technical crew of Joji includes Shyju Khalid for working the camera and Justin Varghese for composing the tunes.

Speaking about their new project together, scriptwriter Syam had said in an interview with the Times of India that Fahadh will be playing the lead role in Joji, and this role is based on the character of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Besides Joji, Fahadh also has Irul in his kitty. Directed by Nasif Yousuf Izzudin, Irul has Darshana Rajendran as the female lead with Soubin Shahir in a pivotal role. The shooting for this film began on September 16, as announced by producer Anto Joseph, and was wrapped up a month later. It is currently in post-production.

Fahadh has Paattu with director Alphonse Putheran in the making as well. The film will be produced by Zacharia Thomas and Alwin Antony under the banner UGM Entertainments.

Fahadh’s last film to release in theatres was Trance, directed by Anwar Rasheed. The film was scripted by Vadakkan Vincent. Bankrolled by Anwar Rasheed under his banner Anwar Rasheed Entertainments, the film had Fahadh Faasil in the lead role with Nazriya, Vinayakan, Soubin Shahir, Chemban Vinod, Sreenath Bhasi and Alphonse Puthran in supporting roles. Jackson Vijayan composed music for this film, with Amala Neerad working the camera and Praveen Prabhakar doing the edits. Academy Award winner Resul Pookutty took care of the sound design.
