Talking about why he is not scared take on such roles, Asif Ali said in an interview to a daily, “From the start of my career, I have always given precedence to playing characters rather than lead roles. It’s a long time after Apoorvaragangal, Rithu and Ordinary that I was offered a negative role. A lot of people, when they come to pitch me a script, have this fear that I am hero material and won’t do a negative character. What attracted me the most about Govind was his grey shades.”
His upcoming films include Underworld and Kettyolaanu Ente Malakha.
