What were your thoughts when you were offered the role? What made you say yes?
When I got to know about Garud, I thought that it might be a comic show because it was on Sony SAB. But when I got the exact details that it is a mythological show, the main attracting point for me was Garud's wings. This is what made me say yes to the role. I always wanted to do something like it is shown in Garud.
Do you find your character challenging to play? How is the experience shooting for a historical show where a lot of animation work is involved?
I think a lot of things in life get hectic and difficult if you feel so. A person will be pretty worried if he comes to know that he is supposed to wear 14 kgs wings and 6 to 7 kgs jewellery and costume. I have mentally prepared myself that it is very easy and pretty normal. I have been chosen for this role and I will be able to do it. This inspires me a lot. When it comes to shooting, a lot of technical things are involved which is why we have to give a lot of retakes. The writers have kept the language easy so that it can connect the viewers. I am really enjoying this character.
You have a flourishing career in acting as well as dancing. How do you manage to stay intact in both professions?
A lot of people question me that what profession is important for me, dancing or acting. I believe both are equal to me. But I started my career with dancing, so, that is always going to be with me. When it comes to managing, if you want to do all of it, you will have to strike a balance. I believe that 24 hours are pretty enough to manage a lot of things if you are willing to do. Apart from that, I also have a little bit of interest in singing. I try to do riyaz. I dance in my makeup room or on the set whenever I get time. So, I think, it's all going well.
Faisal has been a part of numerous dance shows and some TV shows like Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap and Chandragupta Maurya, among others.
