While for many it may appear that FUKREY is debut film of Ali Fazal, the actor has been part of two known projects earlier - Aamir Khan starrer 3 IDIOTS and ALWAYS KABHI KABHI, made under SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment banner.
In 3 IDIOTS he played a small but significant part of an engineering student 'Joy Lobo' (the character's death marks a catalyst of change in the film) and his appearance in the song 'Give Me Some Sunshine' swooned the audiences. His performance was quite noted and soon after he was seen in as one of the main leads in Roshan Abbas directed ALWAYS KABHI KABHI. The film tanked at Box-office but Ali Fazal's performance was raved about.
Now the lanky actor is gearing up to be seen in yet another prestigious banner of the film industry - Excel Entertainment's (owned by Farhan Akhtar & Ritesh Sidhwani) upcoming film FUKREY.
