Critically acclaimed Malayalam filmmaker Anwar Rasheed has just announced his new project titled Trance, with actor Fahadh Faasil in the lead. Rasheed has previously worked with his lead actor Faasil in the anthology film Anchu Sundarikal. 

Rasheed is returning to direction after a gap of five years. His last film, Ustaad Hotel was released in 2012, and was lauded by critics and audiences alike. It followed the story of Faizi (Dulquer Salmaan), an aspiring chef, who returns to his hometown in India when he fails to receive support from his father. He tries to fulfill his dream by helping his grandfather, Kareem, run his hotel. The film won three National Awards when it was released in 2013.

He has also worked on films like Rajamanikyam, Chotta Mumbai, Annan Thambi and two short films in the anthologies Kerala Café and Anchu Sundarikal.

Trance is being produced under the banner of Anwar Rasheed Entertainments and will involve bigwigs like Academy Award winner Resul Pookkuutty, Vincent Vadakkan (who will be writing the script of the film) and critically acclaimed cinematographer Amal Neerad.

Times of India had previously reported that the film will be shot in Kanyakumari, Nagercoil and Kochi and the film will be released in April 2018.
