Ali Fazal is making headlines again and this time it isn't just for his amazing acting skills. He is all set to be the first Indian actor to give a speech at the 7th Annual Hollywood Contenders, about to be held at Los Angeles on 4th November. Here he'll share the stage with some huge Hollywood names, like - Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and James Franco.
After the success of Victoria and Abdul, where he played the role of Abdul Karim alongside Judi Dench as Queen Victoria, Fazal has been spotted at various Hollywood dinners and so on. When asked about his upcoming event, Ali was quoted saying, “Ideally, it would have been Judi and me there but I am going alone this time and of course, Victoria & Abdul has done well across the globe. The way American audience has responded (to) it is really really inviting and nice. Basically, Focus features have 3 films this year which are part of the contenders and we all are going to be there. This is like early stage contenders of the year who are giving a talk on how we came about making the film and what was our role in it and of course when it comes to me, speaking on diversity and the involvement of actors such as me.” This will be a huge leap for his career and we just can't wait to see what he has in store for his fans.
