August 19, 2018: Adding another feather to his cap, Assam-born actor Adil Hussain has received the Amanda Norwegian National Film Awards for Best Actor in a leading role for the Norwegian Film “What Will People Say” (2017) on August 18 in Norway.



It may be mentioned that Adil is the only Indian actor to be nominated ever and win the prestigious award.


Reportedly, Adil earlier had stated that he was honoured to be nominated as such awards are free from any nepotism and are given only on the basis of merit.


Taking to Twitter after receiving the award, Adil tweeted,” Grateful to have Received the #AmandaAwards /#Norwegia National #Awards for #BestActor in a Leading Role for  #WhatWillPeopleSay, Brilliantly Directed by @iramhaq. This award is for #Goalpara #Assam #India for all those who believe that Art Can Break All Boundaries of All Kinds”.


“What Will People Say” has been directed by Iram Haq, who is a second generation Pakistani in Norway. The coming-of-age drama is a personal story of the writer-director, whose first film, I Am Yours (2013) was the official entry to the Oscars from Norway. The film had its world premiere at the 42nd Toronto International Film Festival on 9 September 2017.


The film explores the clash of cultures through the story of a teenage Pakistani-Norwegian girl, whose immigrant parents are horrified with her affair with a local boy.


Adil, who played the role of a doting yet controlling father in the film, has already won the Kanon Award at Kosmorama film festival, which is Norway’s equivalent of the Academy Awards.
