But well he has not left acting and says that he soon will be seen on

Eager to know about how his love for photography, we got in touch with him and an elated Faisal said, "Photography
was my hobby. It all started from my shoots. There used to be
photographers on our sets to shoot the working stills, and I used to examine
them every day. I would also take their camera and click some random
pictures of the sets and my colleagues. It is from then that my love for photography originated and with time slowly it became my career option too."
he added, "Slowly slowly with time I started taking pictures of the
places that I visited and tried to click some portfolios which came out
really well. People appreciated my work and my interest in photography started growing more and more. Then I got my own equipment and opened a studio. So also I have clicked pictures for my telly town buddies namely Rubina Dilaik
, Sharad Kelkar
, producer Rajan Shahi
, Neetu Chandra
among many others."
He gives credit to acting for making him a photographer, "Truly my acting career has helped me a lot get my pictures so well
clicked. It has helped me immensely as I have never assisted anybody in
photography and neither have I taken any classes to learn photography."

should have two careers, so that once his show ends he always has
something else to do rather than sit with no work until you get

photography it does not mean I have quit to acting. I am very much an
actor too and I am getting a lot of offers even now. But I am currently
waiting for a strong concept and a challenging role to come my way."
Well truly said Mr Faisal - an actor should have two careers as you may never know what might happen next.Krishma Solanki.
