Locked down at home for five months has put the audience in a state of gloom but happiness came from an unlikely source yesterday after Ali Fazal tweeted out the trailer of his upcoming international film Death on the Nile.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the film based on Agatha Christie’s novel by the same name is a follow up on the 2017 movie Murder on the Orient Express.
The film’s cast includes Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Letitia Wright, Emma Mackey, Jennifer Saunders, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Sophie Okonedo along with Branagh himself. Ali stars as one of the leads in the fine ensemble film.
Love and adulation poured in from all quarters. His industry colleagues, evidently proud, tweeted in support of him.
