KUALA LUMPUR: Troubled actor Datuk Farid Kamil's off-screen ‘drama’ may be the talk of town now, but Netizens are eagerly following his latest drama series on the small screen, too.
Entitled Lafazkan Kalimah Cintamu, it has been trending on Twitter since it premiered on Monday.
The romantic drama's hashtag #lafazkankalimahcintamu was Malaysia's top trending topic on Monday night with 40,000 Tweets.
Directed by Along Kamaludin and adapted from the novel of the same name by Siti Rosmizah, Lafazkan Kalimah Cintamu also stars Nelydia Senrose, Azhar Sulaiman, Azri Iskandar and Adibah Noor.
It tells the story of 23-year-old Tengku Aqilah (Nelydia), who has been estranged from her father Tengku Hisham (Azri) for 13 years. She finds a job in Tengku Hashim's (Azhar) company and meets his arrogant son Tengku Ryan Ameer (Farid). While they dislike each other at first sight, they gradually fall in love.
Lafazkan Kalimah Cintamu is screened at 10pm on Astro Ria (104) and Ria HD (123) from Mondays to Thursdays.
Yesterday, Farid was charged at the Petaling Jaya Magistrate's Court with two counts of causing hurt to a policeman and a member of the public on Jan 11.
He was also charged with preventing a policeman from discharging his duty, and for committing indecent behaviour in a police station.
He has been released on a RM12,000 bail and his family plans to send him for a medical checkup and establish the state of his mental health.
