The mega budget movie, which is Sukumar’s next project after Rangasthalam, will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi. The Telugu production also marks the biggest film in Fahadh’s career.
Meanwhile, Fahadh will also be playing villain in Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Vikram, which has Kamal Haasan and Vijay Sethupathi as part of the cast. The Malayalam actor recently completed his portions for Malayankunju, which is directed by P Sajimon and is scripted by Malik filmmaker Mahesh Narayanan.
