After making India proud with his small but impressive act in Vin Diesel-Paul Walker starrer ‘Furious 7’, Ali Fazal has now bagged the lead role in Hollywood director Stephen Frears’ next.
Also starring Judi Dench, ‘Victoria And Abdul’ (tentatively titled) is a story set on the 1800’s and will narrate the unexpected friendship of Queen Victoria (to be essayed by Dench) and young Indian clerk Abdul Karim.
Speaking about the same, Ali said that he is living his dream. Speaking further on how he got selected, Fazal said, “I think they liked my hold on Hindi, English and Urdu. I'm growing a beard for this movie. Hence, I'm looking like a homeless guy while promoting my upcoming film 'Happy Bhag Jayegi'. I'll leave for London after it releases.”
Well, here’s wishing the actor all the very best. Keep making us proud, Ali!
