National award-winning Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil is delighted with the acclaim his new film “Joji” has won since its digital release last week. The actor says this has been his most difficult role so far.
The film directed by Dileesh Pothan is inspired by William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”.
“By far ‘Joji’ is the most difficult character,” Fahadh Faasil told IANS. “I read ‘Macbeth’ as being very unstable from the inside out even though he looks strong. This is my approach and my grip. It was difficult to bring all the instability. I tried to make Macbeth a little familiar. I don’t think there are humans without greed and ambition. It’s an emotion that everyone connects to. I tried to explore this aspect of Macbeth, ”he adds.
Written by Syam Pushkaran, the film also features Baburaj, Shammi Thilakan, Alistair Alex and Unnimaya Prasad, Basil Joseph and Sunny PN.
Dileesh and Fahadh Faasil collaborated for the last time on the award-winning film “Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum”.
“It took a long time to crack Joji as a character, it’s definitely my most difficult role to date. Harder than my last movie with Dileesh. In fact, even Dileesh said it was the most difficult movie he ever made, ”Fahadh Faasil said of his latest movie, which was released on Amazon Prime Video.
