In conversation with Ali as he speaks about his film HAPPY BHAAG JAYEGI, on why he is prefers multi-hero projects and his next assignment.
Excerpts of the interview:
You signed HAPPY BHAG JAYEGI after a year, why the break?
Yes, my last movie was KHAMOSHIYAN post which I did a Hollywood film FURIOUS 7 and then I did few web series. The reason I took up this role was I loved Guddu's role a lot and I instantly said yes.
Tell us about your role?
Guddu is an aspiring musician who struggles hard and how he falls in love with Happy and the journey unfolds.
This movie too has two more actors any reason of not taking up solo hero roles?
That is not the case, I loved the script of HAPPY BHAG JAYEGI it was fun and every actor has a set role in it. I do have solo films in hand one is TADKA with Taapsee Pannu and LOVE AFFAIR. I will soon start shooting for the film once I am back with shooting for my next Hollywood film with Judi Dench.
Tell us something about your next Hollywood film?
It's opposite actress Judi Dench wherein I play a guy Abdul from Agra who goes to London and is thrown into a fancy place all of a sudden. Its reel and real for me, that's just what, happened to me. Stephen liked my audition and I did reading sessions with Judi Dench. It's a journey from teaching the Queen Hindi and Urdu to becoming her confidante and political advisor they shared a unique relationship.
You have worked in FURIOUS 7 and now gearing up for next Hollywood as well, any particular actor you would want to share screen space with in Hollywood?
I am already blessed that I am already doing a movie with Jude Dench. I would love to work with every Hollywood actor especially Ryan Reynolds, he is one of the most great actors and some actors like Meryl Streep she is superbly sexy. I would love to share screen space with her.
Which Indian actor should be there in Hollywood but is not there?
I feel Om Puri has been doing Hollywood flicks since long but he isn't marketed well, that's why not many people know that he is also a Hollywood star. I feel good that Bollywood actors like Deepika and Priyanka have already made us proud
