Ali Fazal is one actor who seems to be quietly climbing the success ladder. Having established a career in the Indian film industry, Fazal has trotted across the pond and has gained a little experience with the West. Talking to the media, the actor spoke of the difference between the two industries.
“The unions are very strong in the West. I still get royalties for ‘Furious 7’ (2015) for five days of work in the film. Every time it is screened on any TV, I will get a royalty, whatever it may be. That is a bit of a divide,” Asian Age reports Fazal explaining. Though Fazal was seen in a small role in the Vin Diesel starer it definitely got him noticed, where her later signed ‘For Here or to Go?’ (2015) and ‘Victoria & Abdul’ (2017).
He went on to add, “Everybody is still trying to find out the financial models here in India because of the digital platforms. We still have a long way to go.”
Despite his growing list of Hollywood films, the actor is still very much a part of the Indian j industry, where he explained, “I have to take it seriously because its home. And secondly, I have seen the other side. It’s a great time for actors and directors. We are going through a very interesting change, with audiences appreciating the content. I want to be a part of that wagon and not just leave India because I am getting projects in Hollywood.”
Trying to experience project from all platforms, Fazal’s latest release is a web series titled ‘Mirzapur’ (2018).
