I was in splits: Ali Fazal

The actor gives us a peek into what happened on the sets of his first web film
Ali Fazal is basking in the response that the trailer of his web film Bang Baaja Baraat has garnered among friends and viewers. “The response has been amazing. I am getting calls from friends and they have loved it and I am quite surprised. I had a great time shooting the film as it was a new experience. I am fairly new to the industry and didn’t imagine that I’d do a web film so soon,” he says.
For a particular shot in the film, Ali had to give nine retakes — not because it was a tough scene, but a rather hilarious one. “There’s a shot in the trailer where my fiance’s (Angira Dhar) father has a sex toy on his forehead, originally meant to be a prop for his daughter’s bachelorette party. At the same time, I am there trying to say something important. It was hilarious and I was in splits while shooting,” he adds.
Talking about how he came on board, the actor says, “Anand (Tiwari) and I go back a long way but I had initially said no because that turf was not known to me. I haven’t done a web film before so I wasn’t sure. But once I heard it, I was totally sold. The YRF banner was like a cherry on top. I shot for this film in between the Indo-Chinese project I was doing.”
