Last seen in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Everest, Sahil Salathia is back on the tube as the good-looking Pakistani antagonist, Yussuf Wali Muazzam, in POW — Bandi Yuddh Ke. Since the actor is playing a terrorist from across the border, his look has been carefully designed to suit the character. “I had to look convincing as a Pathan, so I have grown a beard and am sporting green lenses in the show. Luckily, I have a fair complexion, so it wasn’t really that difficult to pass off as one” says Sahil with a smile.
So, what prolonged his hiatus, we ask. “I want to do quality work and not just for the sake of it. I started with Ashutosh Gowariker, whom I have immense respect for, and likewise, now Nikkhil Advani, who’s an acclaimed filmmaker himself, and can be trusted for the character,” shares Sahil.
