Adil Hussain is a man with a vision to grow and become an even better actor than he is today. Born in Goalpara, Assam, Adil is the youngest child in the family. Since the time he started schooling, Adil developed an interest in acting and started with participating in plays. We recently had an amazing #GupshupWithAdil where he spoke about his interests and his experiences. Read on to know more.
A student of philosophy from B. Borooah College, Guwahati, who moved to Delhi to study at the National School Of Drama who later also enrolled himself at the Drama Studio London on a Charles Wallace India Trust Scholarship. Here is the gist of our conversation with Adil Hussian
He has worked in some of the most renowned films in colloquial languages. Vishal Bhardwaj's Kaminey, Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Agent Vinod, Mira Nair's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Ang Lee's Life of Pi, English Vinglish alongside Sridevi and his recent release Love Sonia.
This internationally acclaimed star has won several awards for his cinematic work and believes in making people smile. He would’ve happily taken up the roles of a clown or a cook if not an actor. Imagine Adil cooking a dish specially for you. We’re drooling already!
We saw a complete sport who openly spoke about his wishes and the roles he’d like to play onscreen throughout our #GupshupWithAdil. Did you know that he’d love to play the role of Nargis Dutt in a remake of ‘Mother India (1957)’ and the role of Balraj Sahani from ‘Waqt (1965)’. Such a fan of classic movies he is! Guess the roles he cherishes the most? Rajeev in ‘Mukti Bhawan’, Lakshman Joshi in ‘Sunrise – The Film’ and Mirza in ‘What Will People Say’. Have you watched these yet?
Also, here’s a peek into his dream role, “My dream Role is to Play Krishna. Since we believe that he was born in a human body, how would he be Imparting the wisdom of the Magnitude of Gita to Arjuna! It's a Monumental Challenge. I don't know how to do it. But it will be found I hope. @TataSky #GupshupWithAdil Pray for me”. We’d love to see him play the character.
He also shared his style of preparing for a role. He lets go off preconceived notions and believes in reading the script thoroughly letting the subconscious mind take over it. Isn’t that encouraging?
