The film, Malayankunju, produced by Fazil and starring Fahadh, is making successful progress in the theatres. Fahadh gave an excellent performance in the film, which is themed around landslides.
There was a lot of news about Fahadh's accident on the sets of Malayankunju. Fahadh fell 30 feet from the lift on the sets. It was a big accident. But Fazil is now saying that the crew tried hard to keep that news from the media.
He was speaking in an interview with Behind Woods Ice. Fazil said that they tried a lot not to let it come to the media that day, and they hid the fact that it was a major accident.
"Malayankunju's set was put up by spending around 3 crore rupees. Fahadh had this accident in the first shot. We tried hard to keep it out of the media that day. We hid the fact that it was a major accident. But it was a big risk.
Fahadh needed rest for a month. Still, that hasn't changed. It was very stressful for me. Because what happened in the film I was producing affected me a lot, "Fazil said.
Malayankunju is directed by debutant Saji Mon and scripted by Mahesh Narayanan. Malayankunju is also a Malayalam film, composed by A.R. Rahman after 30 years.
