Adil Hussain, speaking exclusively to G Plus said, “I feel very good being one of the participants. This could be my fourth participation in this festival. I believe the fraternity looks at the actors’ contribution to the independent movement, to films that are not from mainstream Bollywood, but from the directors, writers, actors and others who are into more meaningful cinema.”
“If the next generation gets inspired to do films that are close to their heart, it would be great. You don’t have to look for just gloss and glitter if you keep doing what you want to do. Recognition might come late but it does come. So people do not have to give up and sell your soul for getting name and fame,“ he added.
