Now Mohammed Faisal isn't a boy with over ambitious parents who got him admitted in some acting class. Instead, he belongs to Salaam Balak Trust, which is a theatre group. Faisal's search holds an interesting story behind it.
Dev Benegal, the director of the Road, Movie wanted a child with innocent looks and a pert persona. Having been through countless auditions, he still couldn't find the right fit, which is when Dev's friend suggested he meet the boys from Salaam Balak theatre group. Two days before the shoot, Dev found Faisal, whose acting skills took him by surprise.
So impressed is Dev with Faisal that he has kept a special screening of the film for the kids of Salaam Balak at PVR Select City Walk in Delhi on 4th March at 8:30am. Besides Dev Benegal, Abhay Deol is also going to be present for the screening. This would be a proud moment for the theatre group for sure.
Abhay Deol can not help but go gaga over the child artiste in his upcoming film Road, Movie. He literally called him 'the find of the film'.
