The new actor in town, Jins Baskar, has won the hearts of Malayali movie buffs through actor Vineeth Kumar’s directorial debut, Ayal Njanalla, with his unique looks and style. The actor is super-excited about being lucky to share screen space with Fahadh Faasil and for getting noticed!
“I am as happy as a clam at high tide. My struggles and wait for six long years are finally paying off. I have no words to say how it feels when one sees one’s dreams coming true,” he says with a charming smile.
Jins comes as Arun in Ayal Njanalla, a schoolmate of Fahadh who supports the hero when he comes down to Bangalore for some personal engagements.
“When I heard about the role, someone who the hero depends on and who dominates Fahadh, I was quite doubtful if Vineethettan would really give it to a newcomer like me. Thanks to the team that gave me this fantastic opportunity,” he says. He was earlier seen in Annayum Rasoolum as Sija Rose’s college boy friend.
According to Jins, acting alongside Fahadh is like running a hundred metres race along with an Olympian. “I call him Ikka and he is a gem of a person who just boosts one’s confidence to infinity. During the shoots, he told me that there is no mantra or secret, it is all about having the presence of mind and to just absorb the situation and do it in the way I am comfortable. He is a man with amazing patience and he never showed any discomfort even when the take went beyond two shots,” he recollects.
The Kannur-based engineering graduate who quit his high profile job in an MNC to chase his dreams goes effusive about his director, Vineeth Kumar.
“Though most of us know him only as an actor, he had shown his remarkable craft and talent in his music video album Mazha, a few years back. It was fantastic working with him, as he is so erudite in his vocation. He gave us stress-free and fun-filled days of shooting.”
Cherishing the experience he gained through Ayal Njanalla, Jins now wants to do more memorable characters in tinselville. “When passion becomes our profession, things are really magical,” he signs off.
