Ali Fazal is an actor who has always pushed the envelope when it comes to his projects. He made us all proud when he ventured into international waters and did a great job in the British film, Victoria and Abdul. Now, he is all set to star in the American mystery thriller, Death On The Nile, based on the 1937 novel of the same name by Agatha Christie.
The trailer, that released recently, has been receiving great response from the audience! Ali will star opposite actors like Gal Gadot, Rose Leslie and Armie Hammer among others in the film. The film was shot between September and December in London last year. Though they had planned an extensive promotional run for the film, the coronavirus pandemic has forced them to adopt other innovative ways of promoting their project.
In an Instagram story posted by actor Armie Hammer, we see the entire cast of the film re-unite virtually to kick off the promotional activities for the film virtually through a zoom call.
The novel been adapted to screen by Kenneth Branagh, who is also playing detective Hercule Poirot in the film. It is a follow-up of Branagh’s 2017 film, Murder On The Orient Express.
Death On The Nile is set to release on the 23rd October, 2020. Seems like it is double celebrations for Ali as his much-awaited Amazon Original series, Mirzapur 2 is also set to drop on the same day! Well, the more the merrier, right?
