Fahadh Faasil is set to be active in Malayalam once again, after being busy with projects in Tamil and Telugu the past year. This week, the actor resumed shooting for Akhil Sathyan’s Pachum Athbhuthavilakkum in Kochi. The film, which has had a start-stop schedule since it went on floors ahead of the pandemic, is expected to be Fahadh’s next Malayalam release after Malayankunju.

The light-hearted entertainer has Fahadh essaying the role of a Mumbai-based youngster, who travels to Kerala and Goa and becomes the link between two women. The movie has Anjana Jayaprakash as its female lead and marks the debut directorial of Sathyan Anthikad’s son Akhil.

Pachuvum Athbhuthavilakum, which also has Mukesh, Innocent and Vineeth in pivotal roles, was earlier announced as a December release. While there’s no official confirmation, rumours are rife that the film could be pushed to next year.

The final schedule of the film, which kicked off in Kochi, will also include locations in Palakkad and Goa and conclude by November this year. Fahadh is then expected to begin work on Sudeesh Sankar’s Hanuman Gear.

The filmmaker of the latter movie, which is a realistic thriller, had earlier told us that the actor will be essaying the role of an off-road driver, who faces insurmountable odds in his life. Fahadh has also signed up Althaf Salim’s romcom Odum Kuthira Chadum Kuthira, which is expected to go on floors only after he completes his prior commitments.

The actor is also expected to begin work on the sequel of Allu Arjun’s Pushpa later this year. Fahadh’s next release, meanwhile, could be the Tamil film Maamannan, the shoot of which was wrapped up earlier this month. The Joji actor has also completed work on Mahesh Narayanan’s segment Sherlock in the Netflix anthology based on MT Vasudevan Nair’s stories. The anthology, which also stars Mohanlal, Mammootty, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Aparna Balamurali and Biju Menon, is expected to drop on the platform soon.
