Actors are known to experiment with their looks and even transform from flab to fab and vice-a-versa. It’s a common practice in an actor’s professional life. Some go to an extreme level of transforming them by way of natural process and some adapt to prosthetic make-ups. Recently actor Ali Fazal took a step marking his professional commitment that could have led him to gain an international project again.
Ali was yet to complete the last song of his much-anticipated sequel ‘Fukrey Returns’ where he was donning long hair with a rugged look. In between Ali was offered an international web show by a leading Hollywood production team. It was lucrative where Ali was suppose to play one of the leads and required three months of nonstop shooting in LA to complete the first season.
To prepare for the role Ali was asked to clean shave and maintain a crew cut. Everything fell in place, the only hitch was maintaining short hair and clean shave since Ali was yet to shoot the last song of ‘Fukrey Returns’ and getting the hair cut done would have affected the film continuity and monetary loss to the producers if delayed further. After much negotiation and calculation, Ali let go off the International project as he didn’t want his producers and team of ‘Fukrey Returns’ to suffer because of him.
As once they had to push the song shoot because of him shooting for ‘Victoria and Abdul’ and this time by letting this international offer go he made sure not to let his ‘Fukrey’ team down. Such a commitment and sacrifice in show business is a very rare incident to notice.
