Fahadh Faasil on why he avoids religion in his films

The Aavesham actor admitted that the only topic he wants to avoid in his films is ‘religion’. While recalling the box office failure of his 2020 movie Trance, Fahadh opined, “I have my reservations about dealing with religion in Kerala. I don’t think people want to hear the harsh reality, if I may say. They want to be entertained.” He further added, “Trance lacked the entertainment factor. There was a lot of awareness and things like that, but the entertainment factor was taken away from the film at some point. That’s where we failed. Having said that, a corrected second half of Trance would make a lot of difference. But I wouldn’t touch religion for a while in Kerala.”
