Just last week producer Anto Joseph had announced that Malik would premiere on a streaming platform. Actor Fahadh Faasil who is part of this political drama film released a statement on his Facebook account on Wednesday backing the decision of the makers to release the film on OTT. The note read, “With a heavy heart, the director, the producer, all the technicians, and the rest of us cast have opted for an OTT release for our very ambitious project, Malik. Each and everyone associated with Malik has put in over a years time to bring this project together. Unlike my recent OTT releases which were planned for home viewing right from the beginning, Malik was designed for a theatrical experience and it was the only film I had ready when theatres would open to 100%. The decision has been collective and I personally request everyone to see it in the best interest of the film. In all honesty, I cannot wait for the theatres to regain normalcy but today every individual is fighting to regain normalcy in their respective space. At this point, all that I can take responsibility is for an absolute fresh theatrical experience when I see you all in theatres next.”
The actor also spoke about his injury which he sustained on the sets of Malayankunju earlier this year. The statement read, "This may not be an appropriate time to write midst a life-threatening pandemic. Let me begin with the hope that all of us are fighting things the best way we can, now and ahead. I was also undergoing recovery from the accident I had during Malayankunju. So, in my calendar, the lockdown started from March 2. My doctors said it was ‘Close’. As a defense mechanism, my hands touched the ground before my face, which in 80% of the cases victims fail to do because of the trauma and depth of the fall. I was lucky I didn’t loose my presence of mind, my doctor added. There again, I was lucky with life for the Nth time."
Fahadh who is been married to actress Nazriya Nazim for seven years opened up for the first time about his relationship. From working on 7 years of Bangalore days to their recent film Trance which released in 2020, the actor bore it all.
