Fahadh Faasil on Pushpa: “I don’t think the film did anything for me”

en Bollywood News Fahadh Faasil on Pushpa: “I don’t think the film did anything for me”

Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil argues that the Telugu film Pushpa has done little for his career.

Pushpa: The Rise gained worldwide acclaim and elevated Allu Arjun to superstardom with his compelling performance. Fahadh Faasil, portraying the menacing villain SP Bhanwar Singh Shekawat, received widespread praise for his role as a sinister cop, adding depth to the film. Despite the film's success, Fahadh expressed that Pushpa did not significantly impact his career trajectory. This perspective highlights the nuanced nature of success in the film industry, where individual outcomes can vary despite involvement in a blockbuster production.

In an interview with Film Companion, the Malayalam star was questioned if he has become a Pan-Indian sensation since Pushpa, and Fahadh simply stated that Pushpa did not do much for him.

When asked if he knows that he is huge beyond Kerala because of Pushpa, Fahadh Faasil said, “No, I don’t think Pushpa did anything for me. I tell Sukumar sir that. I don’t have to hide it. I have to be honest. I am doing my stuff here. No disrespect to anything. People expect magic from me after Pushpa… no. It’s pure collaboration and love for Sukumar Sir. My stuff is here (Malayalam cinema). Very clearly, my stuff is here. That’s one.”

He added, “Two, it doesn’t get to me because many friends and I here think and believe that Vicky Kaushal is the find of the decade. Rajkumar Rao is one of the finest actors India has ever produced. Ranbir (Kapoor)… I mean… the best actor in the country. So, I don’t know what they see in me. I was surprised that people are following films from here… they are seeing Kumbalangi Nights and Trance. And I kept wondering about the connection and what they are identifying with. Even now I believe it is the art form they are connected to more than the performances or the performers.”

Fahadh stated that he is intrigued to see so many non-Malayali families watching Malayalam films. “So, that is very exciting. For me, I don’t believe that Pushpa would change me, or it would take me to another… No, I don’t believe that.”

Fahadh Faasil also dismissed the statement that he is a pan-Indian actor. “No. I am just an actor here. I have nothing to do with Pan-India and whatever. I just do things that I believe in. The film should do business, that’s secondary. But the film that I do here… I mean I can never do it anywhere else. I can easily set up a film in Tamil, but everything will fall into place except the idea. I assume that will be the case in Hindi as well.”

Fahadh claimed that Karan Johar contacted him after seeing his films and discussed certain situations. Vicky Kaushal and Rajkumar Rao are also frequently discussed film with him. “I like Pan-India. I enjoy that closeness. Nothing more than that,” he said.
