Humans Are Highly Creative, They'll Find a Way to Adapt: Adil Hussain on Our 'New Normal'

The actor talks about shooting in a post-lockdown world and why a short film is like a delectable, little dessert as opposed to the challenges that a longer project poses.

"Truth is multidimensional and no matter how deep you dive, it keeps unfolding", says Adil Hussain when he talks about how he prepares for his characters. Be it a short film or a feature, be it an Indian project or an international one, the quest is always about engaging with the truth. However, acting, cinema and filming is only one part of it, the conversation soon finds itself turning to concerns that are gaining more and more relevance in contemporary times - the environment, lockdown during a pandemic and the indomitable human spirit to constantly push through irrespective of the obstacles thrown our way.

For the listener who stays till the end, Hussain has a beautiful comment to make about our responsibility to uplift each other, along with the reminder that no matter how difficult things may seem, human beings will always find a way to tell stories and express themselves creatively.
