One of Malayalam film industry’s most gifted actors, Fahadh Faasil, has opened up on how he proposed to his wife actress Nazriya Nazim while they were shooting for director Anjali Menon’s film Bangalore Days.
Fahadh, the son of brilliant film director Faasil, in a statement that urged fans to extend support to his film Maalik which will now be releasing on OTT, also made a passing reference to how he proposed to Nazriya.
Fahadh said, “Seven years of Bangalore Days bring back so many good memories. Falling head over heels for Nazriya, beginning of my journey with her. I asked her out over a handwritten letter and slipped a ring along. She didn’t say yes. But she didn’t say No either!
I shot Bangalore Days along with two other films. It’s just suicidal to shoot three films at a time. I used to look forward to return to shoot Bangalore Days. I loved being around Nazriya. But my thoughts were random.
I don’t know if it sounds well now. But at that point, there was a lot Nazriya had to give up choosing me. It absolutely worried me and I kept fluctuating.
It’sjust when I thought it was all going to be over because I am not strong enough, she said, “Hello, method actor, who do you think you are?It’s just one simple life. Pack your bags with everyone and everything you need.”
We have been married for seven years. Even now, when I leave the TV remote in the bathroom, she asks with the same conviction, “Who do you think you are. Seven years of Bangalore Days have given me a bit more than what I deserve. We work together. We spoil each other. We back each other. We are a team no matter what.”
