Trivia: Everyone from Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor to Kangana Ranaut and Chitrangada Singh have auditioned for a role in Fast and Furious 7 but Ali Fazal can’t stop stressing that his role in Fast and Furious 7 is ‘only a 2 to 3 scene cameo’ and even jokes that ‘it could well be edited out of the finished film…these things are known to happen’. He’s not considering this his Hollywood debut! So humble, even those little scenes are a big step!
