With the movie’s premiere just a few days away, the director and star cast are sharing the same excitement levels that the ardent fans are. 
Mahesh Narayanan, the director of Malik revealed “Malik is a grand project, thousands and hundreds of artists and crew have come together to create something which leaves a long-lasting impact. We have aimed to keep the film as close to perfection as possible''. 

''Every scene of the movie is exactly what all of us had in mind while we were developing the story of Malik. I believe that Malik is closer to my heart while developing and executing the film, that will remain forever.'' He added. 

Talking further, Mahesh also spoke a bit about working with Fahadh Faasil, who he considers as one of the most talented and versatile actor in the Indian Film Industry. 

He said, “This film is also special, because I get to work once again with this very versatile actor - Fahadh. Fahadh has such a huge fan following that once when we were shooting a scene and almost 1500 people had gathered to watch him. That’s when I realized how big this project is. He is truly a superstar with quintessential acting skills and it's a gift to see him read the script once and understand what the character is. He puts his mind, body and soul into a movie and maybe that’s the reason he is being loved by so many people and is a superstar.”
