Following the success of Khuda Haafiz: Chapter 2 Agnipariksha, filmmaker Faruk Kabir appears to have begun work on his next. We hear his subsequent project will be on a grand scale and no prizes for guessing that it will be headlined by a South superstar! According to sources, Faruk Kabir will collaborate with Suriya on a film he has written for. While the South film is shot next year, Faruk will additionally be directing the Hindi version, which will star a Bollywood star. Everyone's attention is focused on the successful filmmaker, as this news has piqued everyone's interest!

Faruk Kabir's family has been into movies for a long time. Murad, his maternal grandfather, was a well-known character actor. His uncle, Raza Murad, and his sister, Sanober Kabir, are both actors. Sabhia, his mother, is a costume designer. Allah Ke Banday (2010) was his feature film directorial debut, and he also acted in it. He was recently in the news for his film Khuda Haafiz, which starred Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleeka Oberoi and reportedly did well on the OTT circuit.

In an interview, Faruk said he enjoys creating real-life stories."I go forward with the conviction that if a true-life story compels me to weave a film around it, it's a story worth telling. And while making the film, I incorporate my feelings about the story. The finished product, usually, is a blend of fiction and reality, as well as my perceptions."

It wasn't easy being a director. He's had his fair share of rejections. It took a long time for Khuda Haafiz's script to be approved. Faruk does not believe in seeking approval from others. He advises sticking to one's convictions and not giving up hope because one day your convictions and hard work will shine through. That is why he has avoided the big banner route as well. "Rejections push you to do better and work harder. And, one should not be discouraged by them," he said.

Faruk claims that as a creative person, his only goal was to obtain the means to express his creativity. "I've worked as an ad filmmaker, creating commercials with Madhuri Dixit, Virat Kohli, and many other celebrities. Ads help you become better storytellers because you must convey your message in a short period. They assist you in pushing the boundaries," he stated.

Faruk is a huge fan of William Shakespeare, arguably the greatest storyteller of all time. When he gets stuck writing, he goes back to reading Shakespeare. Faruk is awestruck by Shakespeare's plays' sense of drama. The director values his experience working as an assistant to both Aziz Mirza and Santosh Sivan and was always astounded by their working style and professionalism.

On the other side, Suriya, who returned from the US after his vacation, is preparing to start the final schedule of Vanangaan, directed by Bala. The actor, further, has Vaadivaasal with Vetrimaaran, and an untitled project with Siruthai Siva, in his kitty.
