Renowned actor Adil Hussain recently spoke about his latest film, Footprints on Water, and India's hosting of the G20 summit for the first time. Hussain told ANI that he is "pretty good with debut directors" because they are "enthusiastic" and "put in a lot of hard work."
Adil Hussain on India hosting G20 Summit: “I wish it is G143 because…”
He praised the director of Footprints on Water, Natalia Syam, for her knowledge of the subject matter and her willingness to improvise.
The film, which was screened at the G20 Film Festival in New Delhi, tells the story of illegal immigrants living in the UK. Hussain plays the role of Raghu, a small-scale business owner in India who flees to the UK with his wife and daughter after being mired in a financial scam.
Hussain said that he can relate to Raghu's experiences, as he has himself been an immigrant. "In India we all are immigrants," he said. "I travelled from Assam to Delhi and found a culture that was completely different from my hometown. Similarly, I went to Kerala to learn Kathakali and found an altogether different culture, language and food."
Hussain also spoke about India's hosting of the G20 summit. He said, “I wish it is G143 because G20 and I would prefer 100 or 210 countries of the world to come together then we can truly say Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (the world is one family)."
The actor also spoke about the importance of art in society. He said that art should be used to "bring people together" and "not to divide the society." He added that he is "happy people are returning to cinema halls" but that it is important to focus on content and make films that are inspired by the "great saints of India."
Hussain is currently working on several projects, including a film about mime art titled The Second Chance.
