The Indian release of the film is on the 13th October where Ali will be seen in the role of Abdul Karim in the movie. While on his world premiere international tour, Ali met a few directors and stars in Hollywood and is in talks for some upcoming projects there.
According to sources, Ali is in talks with a Hollywood director for a biopic role and it will be the first time an Indian actor will be featured in a Hollywood biopic.
He is unwilling to divulge details but admits that he has met a filmmaker to discuss an international project, a biopic, even before he signed up with WME. “It will hopefully roll in 2018. I can’t elaborate further as I am yet to sign on the dotted line,” the actor informed, adding that the world is becoming a smaller place with the market really opening up.
“Filmmakers are experimenting with unique topics and I want to grab these opportunities and not get typecast,” he said.
