In a statement released on June 16, actor Fahadh Faasil shared his thoughts on the decision of the producers of his upcoming ambitious movie Malik to opt for the OTT route. He said that the film was made for the big screen experience but owing to the current circumstances the team was left with no other choice. It is to be noted that Fahadh's recent movies C U Soon, Irul, and Joji were released through OTT platforms.

“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 year's 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," wrote Fahadh.

The actor also spoke about the injury he suffered on the sets of his forthcoming film, Malayankunju. "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 on March 2. My doctors said it was ‘Close’. As a defense mechanism, my hands touched the ground before my face, which is 80% of the cases victims fail to do because of the trauma and depth of the fall. I was lucky I didn’t lose my presence of mind, my doctor added. There again, I was lucky with life for the Nth time."

Fahadh, who is always tight-lipped about his personal life, also spoke about his academic days in America and the Bangalore Days times when he proposed to his wife Nazriya. The couple has been married for seven years now. "7 years of Bangalore days bring back so many good memories. Falling head over heels for Nazriya, the beginning of my journey with her. I asked her out over a handwritten letter and slipped a ring along. She didn’t say yes. But she didn’t say NO either!! I shot Bangalore days along with two other films. It’s just suicidal to shoot three films at a time. I used to look forward to returning to shoot Bangalore days. I loved being around Nazriya. But my thoughts were random. I don’t know if it sounds well now, but at that point, there was a lot Nazriya had to give up choosing me. It absolutely worried me and I kept fluctuating. It’s just when I thought it was all going to be over because I am not strong enough she said, ‘Hello, method actor, who do you think you are? It’s just one simple life. pack your bags with everyone and everything you need," wrote Fahadh.
