Coming to their film, it has gone on floors in London and will be shot in Europe too. And this is what Fazal had to say when he came on board, "Yes, I am part of this wonderful journey and I look forward to being a part of it. My mother and I have always been huge fans of Agatha Christie novels." Fazal is not new to the world of International Cinema as he has acted in Hollywood films like Victoria and Abdul and Fast and Furious 7.

The actor made his debut in 2009 with Rajkumar Hirani's 3 idiots and went on to do films like Fukrey, Bobby Jasoos, Happy Bhag Jayegi and the recently released, Prassthanam. Last year, his popularity quadrupled when he starred as Guddu in Amazon Prime's crime-drama, Mirzapur. The makers are all set for the second season.

He's in a relationship with Richa Chadha and hasn't hidden his love for her from anyone. The couple often posts some adorable pictures together and has worked together in two Fukrey movies. But in that comedy, the two were pitted against each other, it's time for someone to cast them in a deep and passionate romance, which does justice to their talent.

    "I feel sad for those who think Ali and I are faking our relationship," she told mid-day in December 2017. Alluding to a storyline that appeared to pair her alongside Varun Sharma's character in Fukrey, Choocha, she added, "If I had to start a love rumour to promote the film, I would have done it with Choocha. Ali and I never wanted to talk about our relationship publicly because we knew this is how people would react. People should use their brains before passing comments. I hope they get the right message after reading this."

    Richa Chadha's arrival at the LA premiere of Ali Fazal's British film, Victoria & Abdul, in September 2017, appeared to be the validation that the media was seeking about their affair. Talking about the same, Richa said the comprehension was fitting, after all, "it was obvious that I would not go so far if we were only friends."
