Ali Fazal’s latest Hollywood flick VICTORIA AND ABDUL is all set to release in India this Friday. Ali will be seen in the role of Abdul Karim in the movie opposite Dame Judi Dench who is playing Queen Victoria.
According to sources, Ali is in talks with a Hollywood director for a biopic role and it will be the first time an Indian actor will be featured in a Hollywood biopic.
However the actor is unwilling to divulge any details but admits that he had met a filmmaker to discuss an international project, a biopic, even before he signed up with WME.
“It will hopefully roll in 2018. I can’t elaborate further as I am yet to sign on the dotted line,” the actor informed, adding that the world is becoming a smaller place with the market really opening up.
Ali signs off saying, “Filmmakers are experimenting with unique topics and I want to grab these opportunities and not get typecast.”
