Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

Ac­tor Ali Fazal (left) will soon be writ­ing a book on his grand­fa­ther Ahmed Saeed, who brought him up and is like a fa­ther to him. The 28-yearold says that he wants to in­clude all the de­tails about his grandad’s life — a jour­ney through his early adult­hood, mar­riage as well as the dark side of his life, which in­cludes in­ci­dents where he came face-to-face with sit­u­a­tions like plot­ted mur­ders, kid­nap­ping and see­ing gun shots fired.

“It’s a book on his life jour­ney, right from his days in Lucknow to his mar­riage into a royal fam­ily (my grand­mother’s), and the life af­ter that. Amid all this, there were money dis­putes and prop­erty feuds. It’s an in­ter­est­ing take and it’s go­ing to be an elab­o­rate task,” says Ali, who has fea­tured in films like Khamoshiyan (2015), Bobby Ja­soos (2014) and Fukrey (2013).

Although he is busy with his on­go­ing movie projects, Ali wants to start work on his book soon. “It is chal­leng­ing to man­age this book with my other film projects, but I am de­ter­mined to do this. I want to fin­ish this by the end of this year. My grand­fa­ther is 89, and I want him to see the book as soon as pos­si­ble,” says Ali.
