At a time when Bollywood is raining biopics on India’s biggest cricketers such as Mohammad Azharuddin and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a film called ‘Freaky Ali’, based on a rather overlooked sport – Golf – is set to woo the audiences.
With superstar Salman Khan backing the film, his brother Sohail Khan being at the helm of it and an actor of unparalleled caliber - Nawazuddin Siddiqui – playing the lead, the movie has till yet checked all the boxes required to excel at the Box Office.
Recently, the team of ‘Freaky Ali’ graced the India launch of Golfing Nation and the World Long Drive Championship Final with their presence.
The event which was held at The Leela Ambience, Gurgaon, was attended by actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sohail Khan, Jas Arora.
Much to the delight of his fans, the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ actor picked up a Golf stick and gave a demo of what he will be seen doing in the upcoming release.
The Director of the Golfing Nation, Sidharth Arora, who will also be making his debut with ‘Freaky Ali’, showered praises on Sohail Khan, saying, “It was an honour to work with Mr. Sohail Khan on Freaky Ali. A movie based on Golf in India was never thought of. I am indeed grateful to him for showcasing our passion on the silver screen. We hope that this movie will bring awareness in the public and make golf the next big sport in India.”
The movie will hit the silver screen on September 9 along with Sidharth Malhotra-Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Baar Baar Dekho’.
