Bollywood actor Ali Fazal speaks to HT City Entertainment Editor, Monika Rawal, about having a bittersweet 2020.
While he garnered a lot of praise for his portrayal of Guddu Bhaiya in season 2 of web series Mirzapur, he suffered a personal loss when he lost his mother.
Holding his head high, the actor is now looking forward to a great 2021 and also finally getting married to long-time girlfriend, actor Richa Chadha.
Sharing his views on whether actors should speak up on important matters or not, Fazal says, "It's so stupid that we let that small square box with 280 characters control the narratives in a country." He also talks about the whole debate around web censorship and feels it's highly unfair on the technicians and a director's vision when a web show is asked to delete some scenes.
"Then we're just pretending that we're racing for the Oscars, global dominance and the canvas has gotten bigger," he explains.
About his next projects, Fazal spoke about shooting for Fukrey 3, preparation for Mirzapur 3 and awaiting the release of Death On The Nile in September.
