Post Victoria and Abdul, Ali Fazal has begun prepping for his upcoming video on demand series, Mirzapur, which is being produced by the Farhan Akhtar-owned production house, Excel Entertainment. Reportedly, Ali has gone through a complete image change for his character in the series.
The show, that reportedly has a rural backdrop, will feature the Fukrey Returns actor portraying a grey character. His character demanded a serious north Indian gangster persona with the local dialect.
After a series of look tests, the makers zeroed in on a look that has an uncanny resemblance to that of Brad Pitt’s in the Hollywood action film, Fight Club.
In Fight Club, Pitt’s character sported an ultra-lean physique that left the world in shock.
On the other hand, our man in India happened to have landed on a look that coincidentally will remind all cinephiles of Pitt from the cult flick.
Let’s wait and see as to how Ali goes ahead and pull off what will probably be his most challenging character to date.
