Victoria and Abdul movie is based on true story. It gives birth to a beautiful tale of friendship and an amazing story woven with the threads of history.Unlike the insignificant cameo in his American debut film Furious 7 two years ago, actor Ali Fazal is now making a giant leap in the international film world, with his maiden English movie Victoria and Abdul. The film’s international trailer came out on Tuesday and is being appreciated for its sensitive portrayal of the relationship between Queen Victoria and her footman. Naturally excited about the film, Ali told media persons at its trailer launch that he believes this project would be the turning point in his career. “Everyone has a before and after, I think this film will be that for me.” The actor was chosen from a long list of actors, some of whom are his colleagues, and that made Ali happier about the film.Besides the fact that he is playing the lead in an English film, another obvious high for the young actor was working with Dench, one of the most celebrated international actors and also an Oscar-winner. Talking about the experience, Ali said that she was extremely welcoming towards him and a few days into the shooting, the duo became friends. “The first day we met, we had lunch, just to know each other and break the ice. I was obviously very happy. She is one of the actors we have grown up watching. I touched her feet, hugged her… I was ecstatic. She put me at ease. She was sweet and soon we became friends.”Presented by Focus Features, the trailer has its quirks, subtle moments and amazing one-liners. Directed by two-time Academy winner Stephen Friers, Victoria & Abdul stars him in the lead role opposite Hollywood veteran Judi Dench.
