Ali Fazal To Star Opposite Gerard Butler In Kandahar

Shivam Mishra

Bollywood actor Ali Fazal has demonstrated his calibre not just in Bollywood but also in the West. The Fukrey star has managed to make a space for himself in the Western film industry and is often considered for many roles there. The actor did some outstanding work in Furious 7 and Victoria and Abdul and his characters spoke volumes. Ali's skills are being noticed worldwide and in fact, the actor has already started filming for his next project.

Ali is going to appear opposite London Has Fallen star Gerard Butler in his next titled Kandahar. The film is going to be an action-thriller and Ali will be seen in a leading role. Ric Roman Waugh is directing the film and he also co-wrote the screenplay with Mitchell LaFortune, a former military intelligence officer. Mitchell's experiences in Afghanistan with the Defense Intelligence Agency provide the basis for the story. Kandahar would be the first Hollywood film to be shot entirely in Saudi Arabia.

Speaking about this project Ali said:

I always look forward to new and exciting ventures. We are all set to begin production soon.

Before Kandahar, Ali is going to be seen with the Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot in Death on the Nile, which is slated to release in February 2022. The film also has an ensemble cast of Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright.

Watching Ali Fazal working with stars Gerard Butler and Gal Gadot is truly going to be amazing and I await both of his releases.
