The London premiere of ‘Victoria & Abdul’ took place, with attendees from the film including Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Shrabani Basu (Author of the book), Eddie Izzard, Fenella Woolgar, Lee Hall (Screen-writer) and Stephen Frears (Director).

Based on the book ‘Victoria & Abdul: The True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant’ by Indian author Shrabani Basu, the film explores the “hidden” true story of the unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and her humble servant from India Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal).

The upcoming biographical drama sees academy award winner Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love) reunite with Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena, Mrs. Henderson Presents) and return to the role of Queen Victoria.

‘Victoria & Abdul’ is out this month.
