Mansoor Majeed, 40 has built a long decorated career as a civil engineer and has also ventures into the field of acting whenever a meaningful and fulfilling project comes his way.
He has been a part of the silver screen in movies like Pashu, Hadiya, and Son of Othello and has new projects lined up including the much-anticipated Ente Maavum Pookkum, Face Off, Holy father, Vanitha and Oda Vittu Sudalama.
Majeed says, “I have carved out my professional life in such a technical sphere, haven’t I? And my heart is in the arts of cinema and theatre. People might see my fields as opposites but I have the same amount of love for both. I believe that human beings are very dynamic and labelling anyone into one box is very unfair and shallow. I always encourage my children to pursue all their interests and give time to their hobbies. To live life to the fullest we need to follow our hearts to wherever it takes us.”.
When he isn’t shooting for a film, Majeed is busy running his firm Greenland Builders and Developers. Being a civil engineer – and a business owner requires a lot of time and work but with his passion he always makes everything look like a cakewalk.
The satisfaction of bringing out my creativity is what I like the most being in this field. The risks involved is the other side of being in this field.
He attributes his success to his roots, saying, “Being born and brought up in a middle class family, many times you feel disheartened that others have more resources or money, that others have more connections. I have had to work for everything that I have and it has moulded me to be self-sufficient and dedicated to whatever is the task at hand.”, he continues – speaking more on his journey, “If anyone really thinks about it, civil engineering and acting aren’t that different. In both my fields I have to bring an idea to life, creative juices start to flow and you get ready to give it your all.”.
Mansoor Majeed’s upcoming acting projects will be hitting the theatres soon, and he seems very enthusiastic for his work to be presented to the world.
