According to a report by TOI, Adil Hussain described his experience of being a part of Star Trek last year in the following words-
“On the day of the shoot, everyone, including the actors, gathered around and made a circle. They formally introduced me, ‘Adil Hussain from India. We welcome you to the family of Star Trek.’ They all clapped and then looked at me. “I said, ‘Do I have to speak?’ They said yes. I didn’t know what to say because I didn’t prepare. But I said, ‘The only thing coming to my mind right now is that I was born in a small town in Assam where newspapers used to come three days late. And now I’m here today, crossing the galaxies. So thank you for letting me into your family’, the actor reminisced. Adil said the show’s lead star, Martin-Green, gave him a hug after his little speech and whispered something in his ear. “She hugged me and whispered into my ear, ‘I’m so looking forward and happy to be working with you’. We had a great time there. It was like clockwork and yet flexible and relaxed. No hierarchy and no-nonsense about being a star. They don’t care about anything. They just knew that I acted in ‘Life of Pi’. It’s a pure human connection. You are an actor and you have been chosen by the director means you’re good. So efficiency has immense value, no matter who you are, where you come from, it doesn’t matter. And, they strive for excellence.”
Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz, David Ajala and Michelle Yeoh are among the other returning cast of the season.
Recently, the English-Vinglish actor was honoured with the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award 2020’ at the online London Indian Film Festival supported by the British Film Institute (BFI). The event was held online due to the ongoing pandemic scenario.
