Well he’s not so much against the concept of the new generation films in Mollywood as much as the content of them. He feels, he said in a recent interview, that the these movies openly promote anti social activities including the use of harmful substances like drugs and alcohol.
Spoken like a true senior member of the industry!
Fazil, of course, like many of his peers is cut from a different cloth when it comes to the art of film making and he has proven time and time again that his vision and and passion for movies work for the mass audiences.
He made iconic movies like Manichithrathazhu and Kaala Paani which won him several laurels and accolades. Manichithrathazhu, in particular, created a record by having successful remakes being made in five different languages – the Tamil one being the Rajinikanth starrer Chandramukhi!
So evidently, he feels cinema should be held to higher standards when it comes to the social messages it conveys.
The legendary director has been inactive for a few years now, and his last few films failed to create an impact commercially.
Now he says he’s ready to get back in the game and a story and script are ready. He is waiting for the upcoming marriage of his son Fahadh to actress Nazriya Nazim on August 21st, and afterwards he plans to launch the film in question.
Fahadh will have a role in the flick, he says, if there is a character that fits him. It would be wonderful indeed for the Malayali film fans to see the father and son working together.
Meanwhile, his younger son Farhaan too is making his entry in to the cinema world, and as a lead star no less, in the upcoming Rajeev Ravi directorial venture Njaan Steve Lopez.
So it seems talent is overflowing and good tidings are in abundance at the Fazil household.
