Fahadh Faasil's Aavesham released on the occasion of Eid. The Jithu Madhavan directorial opened to a decent start at the box office and has earned ₹7 crore in two days in India. After back-to-back Malayalam films have worked well in 2024, namely Anweshippin Kandethum, Bramayugam, Premalu and Manjummel Boys, it seems like the stage is set for another hit from the industry.

“It was an entirely different experience. I have never played such a character before. My characters have always been subtle. So playing this loud character was a new experience for me,” Fahadh added.
