According to On Manorama, the revelation came during the inauguration of Peace Valley Children's Village, a facility dedicated to supporting children with special needs. While interacting with a doctor at the event, Faasil inquired about the treatment of ADHD. He specifically asked if the condition could be easily cured, especially when diagnosed later in life. “He told me it can be easily cured if it's diagnosed at a young age,” Faasil recounted. “I asked whether it can be cured if diagnosed at the age of 41. I am clinically ADHD diagnosed,” he added.

Faasil's openness about his diagnosis is significant, considering ADHD is often perceived as a childhood condition. However, research shows that ADHD can persist into adulthood, affecting aspects of focus, behaviour, and impulse control.

Meanwhile, currently streaming on Prime Video, Fahadh Faasil’s Malayalam action-comedy Aavesham became a box-office hit recently. The blockbuster is written and directed by Jithu Madhavan, with music composed by Sushin Shyam. The film also features Sajin Gopu, Mansoor Ali Khan, Hipzster, Mithun Jai Shankar, Roshan Shanavas, Midhutty, and Ashish Vidyarthi in pivotal roles.

Set against the backdrop of Bangalore, Aavesham is the riveting story of a local kind-hearted gangster, Ranga (played by Fahadh Faasil), and the comical series of events that befall his fiefdom. When three aeronautical engineering students from Kerala—Aju, Bibi, and Shantha—choose to stay at the BK Hostel instead of college accommodations, little do they know that their desire for freedom would land them into trouble with college seniors and eventually propel them into the orbit of Ranga. The hilarious turn of events sparks a comedy of errors and an unlikely friendship between Ranga and Aju, Bibi and Shantha, that not only takes them down an unpredictable path of conflicts and alliances but also disrupts their academic aspirations and personal lives.
