Hollywood actor Elijah Wood, who is best known for his role as Frodo Baggins in ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ trilogy, will visit India in September to be a part of musical performances. And apparently, actor Ali Fazal, who is one of the most promising young faces in India also known internationally for his latest film ‘Furious 7’ will be his official host in the country. The international star will be accompanied by his music partner, Zach Cowie, on this three-city tour. The duo has spun at events such as the Bushmills Live 2012 festival at the Old Bushmills Distillery and at the pre-Emmy party at The London West Hollywood Hotel. Cowie has been DJ-ing since 2001, touring with Animal Collective and Fleet Foxes.
Confirming that Ali is hosting Wood and Cowie, he said: "It's an exchange of notes. At the same time, it’s a kick off for Elijah and Zach on their music venture...taking them around the metro cities and having them introduce their style of music on the consoles. I have seen some of his works and he's a fine actor. Zach’s got a great hold on music, so both of them together is quite the mix. Looking forward."
Despite Wood’s busy acting and producing schedule, he’s eager to show that this performance is more than just a hobby, but a labor of love and he said "We love travelling abroad and playing records, so we can't wait to visit India for the first time, buy killer records and eat delicious food,”. Wood has done a tour across the US promoting their music this year. Now, they will be here from September 3-9 to perform across Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad.
Ali was introduced to Wood via a common friend, said a source close to the ‘Furious 7’ actor.
