Fahadh Faasil played the villain in the Tamil film Maamannan, which had Vadivelu, Udhayanidhi Stalin, and Keerthy Suresh in important roles
Fahadh Faasil has become quite popular with Tamil audiences, essaying the role of Rathnavelu in director Mari Selvaraj's Maamannan, which was released earlier this year. Vadivelu played the protagonist in the film, who comes into conflict with Fahadh's character, who is a villain. And if rumours are to be believed, it looks like the two celebrated actors are set to share screen space once again.
According to whispers, Fahadh and Vadivelu are set to star in a fun road movie that will be helmed by a debutant director. Super Good Films, which bankrolled films like Vijay's Jilla and the Telugu remake of the Malayalam film Lucifer, is expected to back this new project. Fahadh's upcoming movie about off-road drivers, Hanuman Gear, is also backed by Super Good Films.
Fahadh Faasil and Vadivelu in Maamannan
Fahadh received high praise for playing a toxic character in Maamannan. He played the role of a powerful politician who is high on caste pride. Vadivelu also played a politician in the film, but his character takes a stand against the caste discrimination that his community has been facing. Both actors were lauded for their impressive performances.
Fahadh Faasil is branching out to other languages
Fahadh has been a part of big-budget films in languages apart from Malayalam, such as Allu Arjun's Pushpa in Telugu and Kamal Hassan's Vikram in Tamil. His portrayal of negative roles in both films earned him a lot of recognition outside the Malayalam industry. According to reports, the Maheshinte Prathikaram actor is charging Rs 8 crore for being a part of the Pushpa sequel.
Fahadh's upcoming projects
Fahadh has a slew of films in his kitty, including a campus action film that is scheduled to be released in early 2024. The actor plays a goon in the film, Aavesham that is directed by Jithu Madhavan . BTS pictures from the film set recently went viral online. Fahadh is all set to join Althaf Salim's Odum Kuthira Chadum Kuthira, which is a romantic comedy that will go on floors in November.
