Ali, who recently completed shooting for Happy Bhaag Jaayegi with Abhay Deol and Diana Penty, says he used to wonder if Pakistani fans had mistaken him for Ali Zafar but was elated when that was not the case.
I didn’t know I had a fanbase on the other side (of the border). I thought Ali Zafar is Pakistani and they might have mistaken me for him. Yeah, that happens. Anyway, I am so delighted to maybe one day go there and meet those who like me and my work,” Ali said in a statement.
The closest I went (to Pakistan) was to the Attari-Wagah border when we shot some scenes there and it’s electric to witness the same enthusiasm and vigour coming from the other side just a few feet away.”
