    His character walks a thin line and Hussain performs it with much elegance: Forbes

    Critically acclaimed and award-winning actor from Assam, Adil Hussain has been included by Forbes in its list of 'outstanding actors' in the Hindi entertainment industry for the year 2021. 

    Hussain has been included in the Forbes’ list of eight “outstanding actors” in Hindi entertainment in 2021. The actor, originally hailing from Goalpara district, made it to the list for his work in the Akshay Kumar starrer Bollywood film 'Bell Bottom'. 

    "Here’s looking at actors who were not the lead in films and shows, but performed so well that their characters became memorable ones. They most certainly deserve much more appreciation, screen time, and opportunities than they have," Forbes said in its article.

    Speaking about Hussain, Forbes said, "In a movie that is all about larger-than-life heroism, it is not easy for non-central characters to grab attention. When the central character is essayed by Akshay Kumar, the task becomes tougher."

    It added, "Adil Hussain, however, makes that possible, and how! He has essayed the role of the chief of the Indian intelligence agency in 'Bell Bottom' and does it like he owns the film. His character walks a thin line and Hussain performs it with much elegance. He has two National Film awards to his credit."

    The other actors who made it to the Forbes list are:  Supriya Pathak, Abhishek Banerjee, Jimmy Shergill, Sikander Kher, Manav Kaul, Amruta Subhash, and Ashutosh Rana. 

    Hussain, known for films such as 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' and 'Life of Pi', has received National Film Awards (Special Jury) at the 2017 National Film Awards for 'Hotel Salvation' and 'Maj Rati Keteki'.  

    He has starred in English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Tamil, Marathi, Malayalam, Norwegian and French films.
