Fahadh Faasil and director Mahesh Narayanan are back with yet another film titled Malik. The film was meant for theatrical release but had to go for OTT due to the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Malik will release directly on Amazon Prime Video on July 15. Ahead of the film's release, Amazon Prime Video released a BTS video of Malik.
Regarding the film, Mahesh Narayanan said, "Malik is a grand project, thousands and hundreds of artists and crew have come together to create something which leaves a long-lasting impact. We have aimed to keep the film as close to perfection as possible. Every scene of the movie is exactly what all of us had in mind while we were developing the story of Malik. I believe that Malik is closer to my heart while developing and executing the film, which will remain forever. This film is also special because I get to work once again with this very versatile actor - Fahadh. Fahadh has such a huge fan following that once when we were shooting a scene and almost 1500 people had gathered to watch him. That’s when I realized how big this project is. He is truly a superstar with quintessential acting skills and it's a gift to see him read the script once and understand what the character is. He puts his mind, body, and soul into a movie and maybe that’s the reason he is being loved by so many people and is a superstar.”
