Fahadh's motivational words were a game-changer for this newbie director

Athiran, a psychological thriller starring Fahadh Faasil and Sai Pallavi, opened to good response from the audience. The film, though had its share of imperfections, was loved by the audience due to the gripping story-telling method and power-packed performance from the leading actors. The film-making looked like one made by an experienced film-maker. Many were surprised to know that Athiran was helmed by a debut director who had no experience in film-making. He had to shelve his first movie within seven days of shoot and it was Fahadh Faasil who motivated him and said that he was capable of making a better film which will win him appreciation. Thus Athiran was evolved.
