Ac­tor Ali Fazal’s (left) fans waited for hours to meet him while he was shoot­ing in Pune; much to their sur­prise, he not only met them, but also got them a small role in a web se­ries. Ali Fazal re­cently shot for a web se­ries, which is backed by Aditya Cho­pra’s pro­duc­tion house. We were told that in the show there is one par­tic­u­lar scene where two of the pro­tag­o­nists are ac­tu­ally real-life fans of Ali who had vis­ited the se­ries’ sets to meet him. Af­ter meet­ing them, Ali, it seems, on im­pulse, took them in­side and got them a small ap­pear­ance in the show. A source re­veals, “The en­tire team was shoot­ing in Pune for the episodic web se­ries, when Ali’s fans reached the sets, and waited out­side for him for hours. As soon as he learnt this, he not only met the fans, but even in­tro­duced them to all the peo­ple on the sets. The next thing you know, they were given an op­por­tu­nity to be part of the web se­ries that Ali was shoot­ing for.” Turns out that there was a scene for which the team needed ‘baraatis’, and that’s where his fans came in.

It is al­ways an over­whelm­ing feel­ing when your fans love and ap­pre­ci­ate the work you do

Ali Fazal, ac­tor
