looks like Indian actors are truly taking over the west in a BIG way. With people like Irrfan Khan playing lead roles and Priyanka Chopra earning the top spot amongst the American audience, it’s now Ali Fazal‘s turn to follow suit. The actor will soon be seen opposite Dame Judi Dench in Oscar Nominated director – Stephen Frears‘ next feature film – Victoria and Abdul, which is soon going to be showcased at the Venice International Film Festival on the 3rd of September.
Now, Variety, which is the biggest global platform, has recognized Fazal as one of the top 10 actors to watch out for this year globally. This year, Ali will be felicitated at the annual Hamptons International Film Festival. Past awardees of this honor have been the likes of Oscar winning actresses Lupita N’yongo and Viola David.
This year, Ali will be felicitated alongside the likes of Dunkirk star Barry Keoghan and Daveed Diggs.
This definitely is going to be a first for an Indian actor to be earning such an honor. It’s believed that Ali will soon be leaving for a world tour to promote the film, starting with Venice. The film is set to release in India on the 6th of October.
