Ali Fazal got the sweetest birthday surprise from actresses Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer. The actor turned a year older on Tuesday and his 'Death In The Nile' co-stars decided to throw an impromptu surprise dinner for the actor post pack up.
Posting an image and video on Instagram, the actor shared, "And the Birthday ended on a sweet and very co incidental plan manifested at this cute little place with some of my wonderful co actors #annettebening @gal_gadot . Thanks for that video Gal, i literally blew the light out of that frame. Also with me was maah dear friend aditya desai and sonali cozied up in a booth near the fire. i wana thank alll my friends and fans from across the globe who poured in with the wishes. I wish everyone wisdom in these dark times - words are often thrown about like shredded paper and so i ask of you to stop and ponder on the ones you use in lets say one day. They can change the world . I kid you not. My two bits. HAVE A GREAT OCTOBER . (I mean i’ll stil post its just.. sounded like a nice end so oct isnt over ) bye. (sic.)"
Fazal has had an exciting 2019 with his web series 'Mirzapur' earning rave reviews. The actor is currently shooting for 'A Death In The Nile' - a screen adaptation of Agatha Christie's famous novel. The film is being directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars in the film as Hercule Poirot.
On his birthday, Fazal also posted a photo with Al Pacino whom he met at 'The Irishman' screening. Fazal wrote an heartfelt post along with the photo. "I post this today. My best gift of 2019 , hell actually my whole life as ive known it because the people who know me know very well what this meant. I told him i pirated his movies just to catch up at one point. Id neva do that now but we all done bad things .
We spoke a little about my work and then for some reason i remembered my two mamu’s and my mum being great fans of him as well.. so, i told him they were the ones who got me hooked on to you. My first fairytale i remember as a child is a story about an italian family in newyork. And years later i asked my mom why she did that. Who tells a kid about the godfather and she said - “i thought it was a nice story but i dont think i told it right. Go Watch it “. Anyway.. this was long overdue. And it happened at a private screening for the irishman with Mr De niro, Martin scorsese, harvy kietel, anna paquin and Al ofcourse. The movie? Flawless and if i can say the perfect film. Now u must understand an actor can never say that but it is. Its long tho,"wrote Fazal.
