Actor Ali Fazal will be seen in the upcoming series Mirzapur, which will stream on Amazon Prime. The series will feature some interesting names such as Pankaj Tripathi, Shwetha Tripathi, Virkant Massey, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rasika Dugal among others.
The actor who was last seen in the Bollywood films Fukrey Returns and Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi said in a media interaction that this upcoming series has good and layered writing. Ali believes the series has an outstanding cast. It has a gripping story he told IANS. He is also penning a short film, which as per Ali is his tribute to Guru Dutt.
The series, he says, is a mix of Narcos and Godfather in the Indian context. Ali gained a lot of traction for his role in Victoria and Abdul, where he was paired opposite Judi Dench. The British drama definitely helped Ali more than his small role in Fast and Furious 7 did. Of the drama, Ali feels it has opened a lot of doors for him, though there is always the risk of getting stereo-typed.
