Actor Adil Hussain views about independent films
Actor Adil Hussain who is well known for his roles in films such as ‘Ishqiya‘ and ‘English Vinglish‘ is all set to make his Tamil debut. He finds actors more seriously involved and prepared in independent films vis-a-vis commercial cinema.
Adil says that, “Since I’m working in commercial as well as independent cinema, I find the filmmaking culture and style quite similar. But what I find different in the foreign as well as independent films I work in, is that the actors are much more involved and treat their work with seriousness”.
Adil said acting in mainstream cinema is “FedEx acting”. He elaborate saying, “In mainstream cinema, you go to the sets, you’re given the dialogues and you act. I call it FedEx acting. You are given something and you deliver. In independent cinema, you’re already in the mode of acting even before you start shooting”.
