extremely aggressive and leading the onground operations, luring the other men,
to the heinous act.
about his role, Suhail Nayyar said,
is one of the most difficult characters I have ever played. The amount of blood
and sweat that has gone into creating ‘Abdullah’ is immeasurable. Playing him
on screen was constantly challenging given the the levels of aggression, the
belief, the Pakistani Punjabi dialect.
I had to
play a character that defies every moral fabric that I stand for or any average
common person can fathom. To understand the psyche of a terrorist is beyond a
commonplace experience- it is almost alien to us. It is a role that I will
forever hold dear to my heart owing to the amazing people I worked with and the
importance of the film in itself.”
Mumbai has an immersive real life subject and I’m sure the audiences will get
to see a story about the real life heroes- the staff and workers. This is a
story that needed to be told and I am exceptionally proud to be a part, albeit
small of it. I’ve had a brilliant experience working with the entire cast and
crew and I’m glad the movie that’s done so well internationally will now be
available for the Indian audience,” said Suhail Nayyar.
