In a conversation with the YouTube channel Galatta Plus, Fahadh talked about why he does supporting roles outside Malayalam cinema when people would rather see him in a full-fledged role in a Malayalam film. The actor said, “I have no sense of timeline. I don't work on timelines. I never finish things and start things on time. There is no plan for things. I am just doing things as they come and I'm excited about.”

 

 

Fahadh added that he doesn’t want the audience to care about him at all. “My commitment to them is I will make the film watchable. I don't want them to think about me otherwise. I don't think you need to worry about me and what I am doing in my life. Just don't take me seriously when you leave the theatres. I don't want people to talk about actors on the dining table. Discuss the film in the theatre or maybe on the drive back home. Not more than that. Cinema is not beyond that. Cinema has a limit and let's just put it there,” said the actor.
