Actor Ali Fazal doesn’t regret choosing Bollywood projects over American TV series “Homeland”. He had to let go “Homeland” because of the date issues as he had already committed his dates for “Khamoshiyan”, which is being produced by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, and his forthcoming film “Bobby Jasoos” in which he will be seen with Vidya Balan.

“I was approached for ‘Homeland’, and it was a great opportunity. But when they asked me for my dates, those were given to Mukesh sir’s film and my promotions for ‘Bobby Jasoos’. Thus there was no question of any talks because these films were important,” Ali, who was seen in films like “3 Idiots” and “Fukrey”, said in a statement.

The makers of “Homeland” wanted Ali to fly down to the US in the first week of July for the workshop and the shoot was set to start soon after.

In the last three years “Homeland” has become one of the most popular TV series across the globe. It has so far won five Golden Globe Awards and 10 Emmys.
