Regarding his choice of a Marathi film Faisal said, “I took it up as a challenge. I liked the concept and the script. As an actor, the film has the perfect recipe for me, in terms of acting, action and dance. It’s a performance-oriented role, and I have always been inclined to taking up such characters.”
