Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - YASHIKA MATHUR

Though ac­tors Ali Fazal (above) and Diana Penty (left) are work­ing to­gether for the first time for Anand L Rai’s next film, the duo bonded well when they re­alised that they are alumni of the same col­lege.

“It was so good to know that Diana and I are from the same col­lege. We would sit and talk for hours about our favourite mem­o­ries from col­lege,” says Fazal, who grad­u­ated in Eco­nomics from St. Xavier’s Col­lege, Mum­bai. Diana Penty grad­u­ated from Xavier’s In­sti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a mass me­dia de­gree. The duo is cur­rently shoot­ing in Chandi­garh.

“The mo­ment we got to know that we are from the same col­lege, we started fig­ur­ing out who are our com­mon con­nec­tions. Turns out, we have a lot of peo­ple in com­mon,” says Fazal.

“They both had never met on cam­pus and did not know each other. On learn­ing that they be­longed to the same col­lege, they had long chats and dis­cus­sions about the col­lege, pro­fes­sors, fun hang­out places around the col­lege, the­atres and even favourite col­lege can­teen food,” says a source.
