Shabbir, one of Ali's fans, had reached out to him from Dubai with a request to help him to propose.

Ali was surprised at the request but instantly offered to help. He personally shot a video and sent it to the girl on social media requesting her to accept Shabbir's proposal.

“It is really amazing the kind of things internet can do. I got one random message from Shabbir which I saw and I realised he reached out to me sincerely for my help,” Ali said in a statement.

The “Fukrey” star added: “He (Shabbir) wanted to propose to his childhood friend and I certainly wanted to do something to help. I'm happy it all worked out.”

On the professional front, Ali is busy with "Happy Bhaag Jayegi" and Prakash Raj's directorial "Tadka".
