While Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil has had an array of big projects in other languages recently, it’s been a while since he did a similar movie in Malayalam. But that could change with director Sudeesh Sankar’s Hanuman Gear, which is set to be made on a big budget of Rs 20 crore.

OTTplay had previously reported that Sudheesh will be teaming up with Fahadh and now the makers have officially confirmed the movie by releasing its poster. The actor will be seen in a rural avatar as an off-road driver in Hanuman Gear.

On the movie, Sudheesh, who had previously helmed Dileep’s Villali Veeram, tells us exclusively, “In the high ranges, drivers use the Hanuman or crawler gear to make the vehicles climb a hill. So, it’s an analogy to things that we try to achieve despite insurmountable odds. This film revolves around a youngster who participates in the off-road drives held in Idukki. How he has to use the ‘Hanuman gear’ at a point in his life when is faced with problems and the changes it brings form the plot.”

The director also says that the film, which is expected to go on floors by November or December this year, will be a realistic entertainer. “This is not an all-out entertainer like Villali Veeran, which has a festive mood throughout. That said, Hanuman Gear is a movie full of life,” he said, adding that the team will be announcing the rest of the cast and crew in the coming weeks.

“It’s a big movie that will be made on a Rs 20 crore budget and will be shot in Idukki, Wagamon, Goa and Chennai,” he concludes. Fahadh, meanwhile, also announced that he will be playing the lead in director Althaf Salim’s next titled Oodum Kuthira Chaadum Kuthiram.
