Ali Fazal has forged a rare friendship bond with actress Judi Dench. The Fukrey star is working with the celebrated British actress in Hollywood flick ‘Victoria and Abdul’. Ali will be depicting the role of Abdul Karim who went on to be a confidant and teacher to the Queen Victoria played by Dench.
Recently Dench made Ali’s birthday memorable by gifting him a royal dinner table accessory case — as a souvenir from Osborne House, which is a former residence of the British royal family.
Ali was floored by his good friend whom he addresses as godmother’s magnanimous gesture.
