Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil will soon be teaming up with director Rosshan Andrews for a campus story, written by duo Bobby-Sanjay. Andrews, at a recent interview with TOI, said that the film will be based on real-life incidents happened in the life of one of the writers, Sanjay.
“It is based on an intense love story I witnessed in my campus. I happened to tell Rosshan about this, and he saw a film in it. The movie won’t be an exact reproduction of the incident, but will have some additions and differences,” said Sanjay. The writer, at the same time, insisted that while he’s drawing out experiences from his own life, it would not be a serious story, promising an entertaining film for the family.
The movie will go on floors once Bobby-Sanjay and Andrrews’ ongoing project Kayamkulam Kochunni is completed. Kayamkulam Kochunni will reportedly have Nivin Pauly essaying the role of the infamous 19th century Robin Hood-esque thief. It is reported that Bobby and Sanjay scripted the film with the help of a history students’ group, after a 2-year-long research. Interestingly, in 1966, a film on the legendary thief was made with late actor Sathyan in the title role.
Fahadh has many of projects in the pipeline, including two films with actor Soubin Shahir – one of them being an untitled film directed by screenwriter Rafi. Fahadh’s other project is reportedly with director Dileesh Pothen, titled Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum. The film will go on floors by the end of this year.
