Bollywood actor Adil Hussain speaks to HT City Entertainment Editor, Monika Rawal, about shooting for two films - Bell Bottom in Scotland and Footprints on the Water in Birmingham - amid the pandemic, and says one cannot let fear take over their mind. He compares working in Hindi cinema and the West, and hopes that Indian filmmakers write more intelligent scripts. The Life of Pie and Star Trek actor emphasises on the need for democratisation in the film business and wants more representation of actors from the North East India.
