The audio launch of the Malayalam film, "Njan Steve Lopez" directed by Rajeev Ravi will take place at AJ Hall in Kaloor, Kochi on 13 July. The musical event will feature Shahbaz Aman, Jassie Gift, Govind Menon, Siddharth Menon and Jensy Gregory. The film stars Farhaan Faasil and Ahaana Krishnakumar in the lead.
In the film, Farhaan plays the role of Steve Lopez, an adolescent from Trivandrum. The naive young man from an army family shares his world with his love Anjali played by Ahaana, who also happens to be the daughter of a police officer.
Farhaan is the youngest son of filmmaker Fazil and brother of Fahadh Faasil. He is a former student of Anupam Kher's acting school. The young actor was waiting for his right time to foray into films when Ravi approached him with this offer.
"I heard many scripts, but did not like any. I was also scared of being compared to Fahadh. But when I met Rajeev Ravi, I felt that this is the film that I should not give a miss. There was no way that I could reject his film," Farhaan told Times of India
Ahaana, daughter of actor Krishnakumar will play as Steve's love interest Anjali in the film. She has earlier turned down Ravi's directorial venture, "Annayum Rasoolum" because of her studies, but the actress-director Geethu Mohandas convinced her to take up "Njan Steve Lopez."
"Anjali, the character is more like me. She is simple and there is no complications surrounding her. Rajeev uncle's style of filming made it easy for me to behave like Anjali. He will explain the character, situations and dialogues and then he will ask us to reciprocate the dialogues in the way we usually talk to each other. So for me and Farhaan, dialogues were more like how we talk casually", Ahaana told Mathrubhumi News about her character in the film.
Rajeev Ravi has also roped in actors like Aliencier Lee, James, Anil Nedumangadu and several other theatre artists with an aim to give talented fresh faces a chance to make a breakthrough in films.
Scheduled to hit the theatres on 8 August, the film's story is written by Santhosh Echikkanam, who had also scripted "Annayum Rasoolum." S. Radhakrishnan has composed the music and Pappu is the cinematographer.
