I am sure not many of you would have been surprised if I was talking about Poonam Pandey or Sherlyn Chopra. But I am not. This piece of info is about Bollywood’s import from Pakistan, the dishy and talented Ali Zafar. I happened to meet the actor a few weeks ago and I couldn’t resist asking him about his future plans in B-town. After all, he has already impressed everyone with his acting chops and has been working with the who’s who of the industry. So what next? He said, “I have no game plan. I just want to keep doing interesting movies and grow as an actor. I want to continue being a versatile her0. That’s all.”
I probed him to reveal his dream directors and he shared, “Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee and Rajkumar Hirani are filmmakers I would love to work with. The list is endless actually. They all have their unique style of filmmaking I particularly admire Raju sir’s work a lot.”
I quizzed whether he would be willing to shed his inhibitions and pose nude in front of the camera for a Raju Hirani film (like Aamir did for PK‘s poster). He chuckled and replied, “Why not? I am totally ready to do something like that.”
I hope Raju sir reads this and casts Ali for his next. Because clearly, he’s rather keen on working with him!
