Faisal Malik was born in Prayagraj, UP on 3rd April 1967. He did not have interest in studies since childhood or dream of becoming an actor. However, he managed to complete B.Com and migrated to Mumbai in order to pursue MBA with his parents’ money. In many interviews, he has mentioned that he ‘ate away’ the money.

He started working as an actor but soon realized that it is a tough job. To sustain himself in the city, he worked as a video editor and as an assistant. His work got recognition, but he was hesitant to face the camera. He had to shed blood, sweat, and tears to set up his own production company:’Humari Film Company’. The company got success with many of the projects but he turned out to be a much better actor.

When he was offered a role in ‘Panchayat’ he thought that the project would not work as the OTT world is dominated by topics like crime and the underworld. Nonetheless, he played our favorite character ‘Prahlad Pandey’ in the film. It was filled with mixed emotions that makes us laugh and also sob at the same time. Faisal also says how challenging it is to become a producer, especially when many of his projects got canceled. Also, he lost his beloved father to the deadly disease.

The actor-producer is currently looking forward to season 2 of the web series Smoke as well as Panchyat. Malik is known for his sense of humor and would go around production houses telling them they should call him if they needed a “dark, fat man”!
