Fahadh Faasil, who is regarded as one of the busiest heroes in the business, had created controversy with his comments on last week's release, Olipporu.
He had written in twitter on the day of the film's release that it had misfired and feels sorry for that.
A week later, his latest film Artist released on Aug 30. The film has opened to favourable reviews and Fahadh's performance as a genius painter with lots of attitude has been given a thumbs up by the critics.
The actor's next release is North 24 Kaatham, directed by debutant director Anil Radhakrishnan Menon.
