Ali Fazal is surely making quite a splash worldwide with his film Victoria and Abdul which has just already started with a bang with its U.K. release making its debut at Number 2 just last week. The film is now set for its wide American release this week and followed by India the week after.
The actor has been traveling with the cast across the world and has been meeting some of the best talent from across the globe at the various film festivals the film has been to. After having shared screen space with the most iconic actress, Dame Judi Dench, Ali was recently spotted hanging out with Oscar Nominated Actress Jessica Chastain who’s known for her role for films like The Help, Zero Dark Thirty, Miss Sloane and several others. Joining them was iconic actor Sam Rockwell. The trio met at a recent gathering and exchanged several notes over lunch about their respective upcoming films. Ali who’s making his big lead debut with the film was told by the actors, “They told me to have fun as, obviously, its my first time here, which they said I will always remember. It was sweet”.
Speaking about their conversations, Ali added, “We were together where Jessica was promoting Aaron Sorkin’s Molly’s Game, while Sam Rockwell was there with Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. We hadn’t seen each other’s projects but they knew about Victoria & Abdul and were excited about it”.
