From Daam and Mera Naseeb to Mata-e-Jaan Hai Tu and Jackson Heights, Adeel Hussain has given us some brilliant performances. People loved his guest appearance in Bin Roye, praised his acting in Ho Mann Jahan and can hardly wait for his upcoming film, Dobara Phir Se.
In a recent interview with FUCHSIA, Adeel Hussain had some interesting thing to say about his choice of work and the current state of Pakistani cinema. Adeel Hussain has worked with Mehreen Jabbar in quite a few projects namely Daam, Mata-e-Jan Hai Tu, Jackson Heights and now Dobara Phir Se. ”Yes, working with Mehreen is always great. To play a lead role in her second directorial outing was a chance not to be missed. There is a lot of history and trust there. She’s an experienced professional with a calm energy that almost disguises her passion for her work. I was really happy that she wanted me for a story set in New York. When a director you already enjoy working with is out to give her best in a movie, and you get to work in a city you love? It’s a no-brainer, really!”
One thing people always admire about him is how selective he is about his work. About this, he said, ”I don’t really go out there to ‘be selective’ per se. I love what I do, and I want to be proud of my work in the future. Everyone needs a pay-cheque, but I decided early that I would do my best to not let that rule me. I’ll just do work that I’m excited about being a part of, and hopefully create the best body of work I can create.”
