Ali Fazal on “chilling” with Vin Diesel and Kurt Russell
When he worked on ‘3 Idiots’, actor Ali Fazal bonded with Aamir Khan over a Rubik’s Cube. By Ali’s own admission, solving the puzzle took him two-and-a-half minutes, while it took Aamir all of 55 seconds! Now, having flown across the Atlantic to appear in the seventh instalment of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ films (simply titled ‘Furious 7’), Ali has tales to tell about Hollywood star Vin Diesel.
“Vin is all about family,” says Ali, who has only three scenes in the film, but is on first name basis with its stellar star cast, including Jason Statham and rapper Ludacris. Ask him about the highlights of working in Hollywood and after a fair bit of tech talk about how films are made in that part of the world and a lot of gushing about their brilliant budgets, Ali says “chilling” with “a legend” like Kurt Russell was a definite perk.
While the ‘Bobby Jasoos’ star is smart enough not to say too much on what is essentially a glorified cameo, we’ll allow him some bragging rights for having any part at all in Universal’s biggest film franchise of all time. With ‘Furious 7’ on his résumé, we hear Ali is now in talks “with someone in Italy” for an upcoming European film. Ali’s route to world domination: one baby step at a time!
