Actor-director Sohail Khan is quite excited about his upcoming film ‘Freaky Ali’ that stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Amy Jackson in pivotal roles. The film foretells the story of how a con man goes on to play Golf, the rich man sport, and reaches the National level. This movie will go on to achieve the status of an inspirational film that will help in encouraging kids in schools and in colleges to play this game, feels the director.

Recently, during a promotional event of the film Sohail said, “When we were researching, we visited various locations. In fact, a lot of people said this to us that the myth (about golf) is that it is only played on Sundays, only retired people play it and only rich play it. We want to break this myth and we want to encourage kids in schools and in colleges so that they can start coming and playing the game. Investment on golf is huge. With this film, we want to establish it as a common man’s game.

  • Sohail further added that, “It is a humane story. It is a sports comedy. Sports for the inspiration and comedy for the entertainment.Our basic story is that the character does not know how to play golf and but starts playing it. He was kind of perfecting his swing…He is gifted… When Nawazuddin started (acting in the film) he was like becoming a professional getting follow through right, then I told him you should look raw in the film.”

    ‘Freaky Ali’ also stars Arbaaz Khan and Nikitin Dheer in a pivotal role and will be releasing on September 9.
