SHAH ALAM - The lead actor of Anwar: The Untold Story, Farid Kamil has described the biopic as one of his most 'priceless' work in his career of 22 years

Farid said it was because the script highlighted the political struggle of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in fighting corruption around 1993 to 1998 was the only film he acted in that was based on a true story.

"There were 67 films I have acted in before and all of them were fiction, but this film is a true story about a figure in our country.

"This is a piece of work that brings back quite sweet memories for me because Anwar himself is able to watch it when he is now serving as a Prime Minister," he told Sinar

Sharing more about his work on the film, the actor admitted that there were many actors who rejected the offer to act in the film in the beginning.

Farid explained that many people around him also advised him not to get involved in the work because it was feared that it would affect his career considering that the filming was done several years before Anwar became Prime Minister.

"I already knew there would be challenges, but I still challenged myself to play this character because Anwar and I share one thing, which is we are against corruption

"Because we still have a leader who is strongly fighting against the crime, I think it is very necessary to adapt the real story in the form of a film," he said.

He also hopes that through the screening of the film, it can be a starting point for sharing 'real' stories in Malaysia.

"We hope that after this, many stories related to real issues in this country can be showcased more often," he added.
