Ali Fazal’s mystery character to be a key part of the suspense in the spy thriller
Since the time the trailer of Ali Fazal’s Hollywood movie Kandahar was released, there have been a lot of questions surrounding Ali’s role in the movie. The trailer clearly shows glimpses and silhouettes of Ali Fazal in the middle of the desert riding a dirt bike and getting off a helicopter, but Ali’s character has been kept under wraps so far.
Shot extensively in Saudi Arabia, the trailer’s mystery man has everyone talking. As per sources, the makers are keeping Ali’s role under wraps as they want it to have a high impact upon the reveal since Ali who is playing a major role will be seen doing some high octane stunts and action.
Check out the Kandahar trailer here:
A source revealed, “Since the trailer had been out, there have been questions about Ali’s character being kept under wraps. People ask us questions like, ‘Why are the makers of Kandahar, keeping Ali’s character under wraps? The intention is to keep the audience guessing and have a large part of the character as a visual surprise on screen. All the glimpses of the man riding the bike, getting off the helicopter shows Ali’s silhouette against a deserted backdrop, with his ardent fans smartly recognising him. Basically Ali plays the character that is leading a key operation in Kandahar which has multiple shades to the character and goes up against the character of Gerard Butler”. Because the film is a spy thriller, Ali’s character is the suspenseful character that will be unveiled over time to the audiences.
Ali’s latest international project, Kandahar, which stars top international actors like Gerard Butler, Travis Fimmel and Navid Negahban, is set to be released in the US on May 26 and soon after globally.
