Malayalam Fahadh Faasil won a National Award in the Best Supporting Actor for his role in Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum and his other film, Take Off, too won a National Award in Special Mention category. Speaking about this, Fahadh Faasil says that he doesn’t really think about and expect about winning awards while working on the films. “I don’t expect to win awards while working in films. I want my films to make money first. Awards and all can come later,” Fahadh Faasil was quoted as saying by The Indian Express. Fahadh Faasil also says that when he started acting in films, he was afraid if audience would accept the films that he would do.
“When I began acting, my biggest fear was whether the audience will appreciate the kind of films I do. It is because I was born a Malayalee, I’m able to do such films. I feel blessed and very happy,” Fahadh added further. Fahadh is currently acting for his upcoming film with Amar Neerad and says that whenever he works with Amal, something good has happened in his life. “Whenever I work with Amal, something good happens in my life. While shooting for Iyobinte Pusthakam I won Kerala State awards and I also got engaged,” Fahadh added.
Speaking about Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, Fahadh said, “Dileesh is one of the finest directors I have worked with. He will ask actors to suggest what we want to do in a scene and work on it. It makes him stands out from the rest. It is by far the most challenging role I have played. The story of this film happens at a police station. In real life, I have never stepped inside a police station so far. I’m not sure about the future though.” Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum won the National Award in the Best Original Screenplay category this year.
