Ali Fazal is currently on a massive leg of worldwide promotions for his Hollywood film as the lead actor – Victoria and Abdul. The film made its first stop at the Venice International Film Festival, which is ranked as one of the top three film festivals in the world. The Bollywood star was seen posing with a gleaming smile alongside his co-star, Dame Judi Dench and Academy Nominated director, Stephen Frears. They posed for the shutterbugs for the official photo call and then attended the press conference of the film.
Later in the evening, looking his dapper best, Ali took to the red carpet for the official world premiere of the film.
The early reviews are in and Ali has already started earning praises for his role as Abdul Karim. While Judi Dench, by all means, has been showered with praises for her poised and clever portrayal of Queen Victoria, it makes us proud to see that these reviews are praising Ali Fazal for his performance as well.
