“Theatre in London is all the to the top. I’ve seen a lot of Broadway musicals. And wondered why we don’t have a single musical of our own in cinema, where the dialogues are written on meter and the actors actually sing it to wing it. The choreography and the movement is something I wanted to get familiar with. The workshop was based on measured movements on beat and rhythm. Which is the essence of performance be it stage or camera,” said Ali of his unique experience.
On the professional front, Ali is currently busy shooting for Tadka, which marks the Bollywood directorial debut of actor Prakash Raj. The film is the Hindi remake of his Tamil film Un Samayal Arayil. Actress Taapsee Pannu is playing Fazal’s love interest in the movie, which also stars Shriya Saran.
