Young actor Ali Fazal is on a roll! After sharing screen space with Dame Judi Dench in the well-received Victoria & Abdul in 2017, he has now bagged a pivotal role in the new Agatha Christie adaptation, Death On The Nile.
“I don’t know how these wonderful things are happening to me. I leave for shooting in a few days. After that, I will be in England for the next 75 days,” says Ali.
He is excited about his character in Death On The Nile, and says, “I’m not playing an Indian character. That, for me, is a big victory. To be an Indian actor and not be pigeon-holed.”
The actor also talks about his Death On The Nile director, saying, “Kenneth Branagh is a legend. His Shakespearean adaptations are a testimony to his greatness. And now he’s directing an Agatha Christie adaptation. My mother and I have been Agatha Christie aficionados for as long as I can remember.”...
