Be it Kumbalangi Nights or Super Deluxe, an actor who always emerges to be stronger than the film’s already supreme narrative has been Fahadh Faasil. Over the years, he has built a strong fan following for himself with the kind of cinema he has chosen to do.
He’s backing and will also star in India’s answer to Hollywood’s Searching titled as C U Soon. Shot completely in the lockdown, the film is a crime thriller.
In his recent conversation with The Indian Express, he opened up about one thing which we never want to hear – his retirement plan. Fahadh Faasil said, “I realised it 10 years ago when I started enjoying acting. As of now, there is nothing else that I would enjoy doing other than being an Uber driver. I would love to drive people around. I tell my wife that as a retirement plan, I wish to move to Barcelona and drive people across Spain. She loves this plan.”
Fahadh Faasil also opened up about the mastery of Irrfan Khan, “Irrfan was so appealing because he seemed very original and real. That was so rare in the cinema back then, when actors wanted to look extraordinary with six-packs. He essayed his characters as an ordinary man. There was a rootedness to the roles he played.”
“The energy that I got from watching Cinema Paradiso (1988), Il Postino (1994) and Aaranya Kaandam (2010) I want to pass it on to another person who wants to do something in cinema. I want to do a film that inspires at least one guy to come up and do something special,” Fahadh Faasil added on his favourite films and filmmakers.
