Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil’s new movie ‘Joji’ has been released on OTT. While the nationally-awarded actor has won a few commercially and critically-acclaimed films, Hindi-language films are still not on the immediate radar.
Speaking of this, Fahadh told IANS: “I have to be fluent in Hindi, and more than that, I have to think in Hindi.”
Fahadh, who has been a part of blockbuster movies such as “Kumbalangi Nights,” “CU Soon,” “Super Deluxe,” and “Athiran,” added, “It’s not that I can’t speak Hindi. can speak and understand hindi, but i need to think in hindi to improvise a scene. i need to feel what i feel when i work here (in malayalam cinema) to go out and work. ‘having the perfect language, I don’t think (Bollywood debut) is going to happen. “
Fahadh’s film “Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum” won three awards at the 65th National Film Awards. Besides Best Malayalam Film and Best Screenplay for the film, Fahadh won in the Best Supporting Actor category.
He once again teamed up with “Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum” director Dileesh Pothan for his latest “Joji” release. The actor also spoke about how Dileesh viewed the film and told him about their treatment of the film, inspired by Shakespeare’s “ Macbeth ”.
“Even before he became a director, he (Dileesh) was an actor by training. He already knew the stage version of Macbeth. After he became a director, he called me and said he wanted to try another take. It is not a direct adaptation but very inspired. You will see a connection with the emotions. It comes and goes. I think this is a very cool take. I was excited about this deviation he wanted to try and I love working with him, ”said Fahadh, of his work experience in his latest film, which fell on Amazon Prime.
