Ali Fazal, who is currently shooting for Sanjay Dutt’s home production Prasthaanam, has been approached to play an important role in filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s upcoming directorial venture. The untitled movie stars Kangana Ranaut as the female lead.
“Ali has been approached to play a significant part in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s yet-untitled next. Though he’s kicked about the project, he hasn’t signed it yet,” a well-placed source reveals to an Indian daily.
The film is based on Kabaddi. Kangana has been roped in to play the protagonist player in the flick. Before the makers begin production in October, the National Film Awards winning actress will undergo intensive training.
Kangana has just wrapped up Ekta Kapoor’s Mental Hai Kya alongside Rajkummar Rao. She is now gearing up to begin the last leg of the shoot for her period film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.
Ali Fazal, on the other hand, will shortly be seen in Mudassar Aziz’s romcom Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. He is also doing a film titled Milan Talkies, which is being helmed by Tigmanshu Dhulia.
