Ali, Diana bond over college memories
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.
