Tigmanshu Dhulia's romantic drama MILAN TALKIES has been in talks for a while having gone through several changes. After rumours of several actors doing the film including the likes of Imran Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Ayushman Khurana and Aditya Roy Kapur, the filmmaker has finally found his lead in India's latest export to Hollywood, Ali Fazal.
Reportedly Ali has read the script and has even given thumbs up to the project. Ali will commence shooting for the film in March. Sources closer to the actor said, "He has given his dates and Tigmanshu is currently on the lookout for the leading lady. It is set in North India and Ali will start shooting in the second week of March after he returns from the Academy Awards ceremony which is to be held on March 4."
Ali is soon to take off to the U.S. to work on his next project after his impeccable lead debut in VICTORIA &ABDUL and will also attend the Oscars as VICTORIA & ABDUL has been nominated for two categories Best Costume and Best Makeup and Hair. Apart from this, the actor has recently wrapped up the shooting for Prakash Raj’s TADKA with Nana Patekar, Taapsee Pannu and Shriya Saran, and soon will be starting his reading sessions and prep for MILAN TALKIES. Later he will also be seen opposite Diana Penty once again in the official sequel of 2016's hit comedy HAPPY BHAAG JAYEGI.
