Actress Mona Singh, who features in the recently released "Zed Plus", says it's satisfying for an actor to be part of a movie like the political satire as it requires one to portray a range of emotions.
This Prime Minister cannot speak Hindi. No, he is not female and of Italian origin. Played by the very authentic Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Mr. Prime Minister in Chandraprakash Dwiwedi's heartwarming political satire, is a bearded, canny, suave and wily patriarch.
Versatile actor Adil Hussain, known for his performances in high-on-content films, including ‘English Vinglish’ and ‘Life Of Pi’, says he has hardly watched any Bollywood films for over three decades. He says they're not to his "taste".
Film actors Seema Biswas and Adil Hussain, who are part of the North Eastern package at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here, today said they would love to work in movies made in that part of the country regularly, provided that scripts appeal to them.

Arya Yuyutsu caught up with `Life of Pi` and `English Vinglish` actor Adil Hussain to ask him about working with Ang Lee, Suraj Sharma, the Oscars, and his upcoming projects in the first of a two-part interview.
Actor Adil Hussain, who has been in news with his recent performances in films like ‘Ishqiya’, ‘Gangor’, ‘For Real’ and ‘Agent Vinod’ is excited about his role in Oscar winning director Ang Lee`s ‘Life of Pi’ and attributes it to luck and a bit of talent.
