Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil is known for his dedication and ability to completely transform into the characters that he's playing. We've seen this in his films time and again. However, the actor has proved that his commitment to acting is not limited to cinema. 

In a video uploaded by Navarasa Creatives, we see Fahadh transforming into an obese man. He sits through the make-up session patiently and sports the prosthetic that makes his trim body look overweight. The video is titled 'Aditi making video' and appears to be for a short ad film. 

The actor is playing a dual role in the ad, one as the overweight man who is exercising on a treadmill and other in which he looks like himself.

The video has enthralled his fans who see it as evidence of his sincerity to the craft. 

After the release of Fahadh's last film Carbon, director Venu declared that he was the best actor in the country today.

Fahadh starred in the highly acclaimed Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum in 2017 and his portrayal of a nameless thief won him accolades. The actor then appeared in a Milma ad which had references to Thondimuthalum. The film was his second with Dileesh Pothan, the first being Mahesinte Prathikaram which also won the actor and the director fame. 

Fahadh was in the cast of Take Off as well, one of Malayalam cinema's most talked about films last year. 

Fahadh made his debut in 2002 in his father, director Fazil's film. However, the film bombed at the box-office and Fahadh's performance was panned, too. The actor then took a break and came back to cinema with a bang.
