‘Mela’ actor Faissal Khan is making his directorial debut with romantic thriller film ‘Faactory’ in which he is essaying the lead role. It also stars Rajkumar Kanojia, Roaleey Ryan, Ribbhu Mehra and Sharad Singh.
We recently spoke to Roaleey who is playing the lead female role opposite Faissal. In the interview, she spoke at length about the film, her character and Faissal Khan.
Roaleey narrated how she bagged the role in the film. She said, “My manager called me and said that there is an audition happening for a film of Faissal Khan who is directing and acting in it. He asked me if I want to go for it. Obviously, I wanted to go to the audition. He sent me the script and I read it. Next day, I went to Faissal and our casting director Mariam and gave the audition and I thought it went pretty well and will get the audition. But then when I didn’t get a call for the next 15 days, Mariam send one her maids to my house as she didn’t have my number with her. Finally, after 15-20 days later, I signed the film.”
She added, “Faissal and Mariam wanted me to completely know the script by heart, so I rehearsed for one month. After that, he was sure that we are ready to go on floors.”
She was all praise for Faissal saying that he is both an amazing director and a co-actor to work with and she was very comfortable working with him. She said, “When I first started rehearsing, that time Faissal was the director because we were doing everything together. He was doing his part also. He is very clear and focussed and knows what he wants your character to be and he gets that work out of you without any kind of drama and screaming. He is very patient and a dream to work with. He is one of the best and greatest directors for sure. As a co-actor, that was a full different feeling and he was also amazing because he allows you to do your thing and he will do his best and wants you to do your best. He is not a selfish co-actor at all. If he felt that I lack in something, he would tell me and we would again re-shoot again. He is very positive and supportive and used to praise a lot that you will feel working with him.
Talking about her character, she said, “She is a very independent girl living an independent life. She is very strong-headed as well and stubborn. At the same time, she is also very hardworking.”
