A decade ago, Faisal Malik set foot in the bustling city of Mumbai, chasing his dreams of making it big in the world of acting. It was his role as a cop in Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) that propelled him into the mainstream, marking a turning point in his career. Fast forward to the present, and Malik’s portrayal of the deputy pradhan in Panchayat 2 has catapulted him into a new realm of fame and recognition.

Reflecting on the recent surge in attention, Malik shares, “The phone has not stopped ringing since the show started streaming — be it on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, messages, or calls — from across the globe. I started getting responses from the first season itself, but then the story was being set up. This season took it to another level, especially the last episode.”

The newfound success brings with it a flood of opportunities for Malik. While he acknowledges the abundance of offers coming his way, he reveals that he had to turn down three scripts as they fell within the same genre. The fear of being typecast looms as a new challenge for the actor.

“Initially, there wasn’t much work, and that was his struggle. Now, with an influx of opportunities, there is a fear of too much work. As an actor, I am finally receiving my due after 20 years, and I am going with the flow. However, I will continue producing shows, as that’s the vertical I have built in all these years,” Malik confides.

As the wait for Panchayat 3 intensifies, Faisal Malik’s journey stands as a testament to the unpredictable trajectory of success in the world of entertainment, reminding us that perseverance and talent are the true cornerstones of triumph.
