After a long delay between his Malayalam theatrical releases, Fahadh Faasil has announced two new projects in two days – Sudheesh Sankar’s Hanuman Gear and Althaf Salim’s Odum Kuthira Chadum Kuthira. The latter will have a lot of expectations as it is helmed by Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela filmmaker.

In an exclusive chat with OTTplay, Althaf tells us, “Odum Kuthira Chadum Kuthira could be Fahadh’s first proper romcom. It’s told entirely through humour and doesn’t have any dark elements at all. It’s an entertainer that the audience can come to the theatre and enjoy.”

While he says that he doesn’t want to reveal anything about Fahadh’s character as that would give away the premise and its novelty, the director explains, “Fahadh was excited about doing such a film. He wanted to be part of something like this.” The actor’s previous films have either been rooted-to-reality dark thrillers or action entertainers such as Pushpa and Vikram.

Further on the movie, Althaf, who is also scripting the film, says, “About 70% of the movie will be shot in Kochi and the rest in Chennai. We will confirm the rest of the cast only in the coming days. Fahadh also has two prior commitments and this film will go on floors only after he completes work on those.”

Fahadh, meanwhile, is shooting for Mari Selvaraj’s Maamannan, which also has Keerthy Suresh, Udayanidhi Stalin and Vadivelu in lead roles. The actor also has the sequel of Pushpa titled Pushpa: The Rule, which is set to go on floors this year.

In Malayalam, he has completed shooting for Akhil Sathyan’s Pachuvum Athbhuthavilakum, which is set to release in December this year. The actor is also part of Sudheesh Sankar’s Hanuman Gear, in which he will be seen essaying the role of an off-road driver. The movie is expected to go on floors by November this year.
