The dishy Ali Fazal has more than his fair share of screaming fans but ask him about it and the actor prefers playing down the attention… “Well, it has been nice, I guess! What I am to say? Of course it is nice, when someone decides to get married to this profession on some level you are anticipating this… All the dark-glasses in a nightclub act, as un-cool it appears, is basically a simple act to grab attention. It is all b**** when an actor says he doesn’t want to be recognised. For me, it has to be conjunctivitis, the only reason to hide behind dark glasses!”
That said, Ali has also experienced fan love going extreme… “Well, I had my very own stalker; it was interesting though I was a little unsure what to do… I knew I was not going home, not with a stalker trailing me, so I just went around in circles for a while. Then there was this one who sent me her father’s number on Facebook and all her details and actually asked for mine; it was almost like rishta pakka type of an affair! It’s fun, it’s interesting!” Of course, it is fun and interesting, not all things are fast and furious!
Speaking of which, Ali was on his first holiday after years, when his agent called him asking him to send across a tape for the Hollywood race flick. “Up in the mountains I was shabby in my dirty jeans, enacting a part that needed me to be really sleek and suave, but I got the part. They liked how I played it. They of course had to reshoot because we first shot with Paul Walker. My scene is with the whole gang! It is exciting and of course, there are the cars! Oh the cars!” And on that note, Ali loses himself in the thought of the cars, which are his idea of ‘sex on wheels’!
