Charismatic actor Ali Fasal is more than happy these days as his first film in lead ALWAYS KABHI KABHI is getting released. Produced by Shahrukh Khan, movie is already making its waves felt among the audiences. He is talking to Amit bachchan & Avinash about his experience working in this movie, who is bigger star in Bollywood and what’s his future plans.

Is it your first film?

No, technically it’s not my first film. I played Joey in Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 IDIOTS. In this movie I am playing Sam, Sameer Khanna, who is a dude in the school. He is what every boy wants to be and every girl wants to be with.

Who is your love interest in this movie?

His love interest is Aishwarya played by Giselle Monteiro. She comes very late in the movie but they hit the road as soon as they meet.

What this film is about?

It’s a film based in school and it’s about all your firsts in life. Your first crush, your first bet, your first fight, your first friendship and how all firsts are different for different characters. It’s amazing graph that you see. I can guarantee people walking in theatres and going out with being connected to at least one character, if not all four.

How did you get this movie?

I got auditioned. After 3 IDIOTS, I got a call from Roshan to meet him. When we met, he narrated me the script which was brilliant. I auditioned for the role and we took it from there.

You have worked with Rajkumar Hirani in your first movie and then you went on to work with a debutant director Roshan Abbas in your second. What difference do you see in their working?

It wasn’t different. Script was amazing and Roshan was just brilliant. He is already well known because of his theatre background. In fact ALWAYS KABHI KABHI is based on his play GRAFFITI. So I don’t think there was any kind of confusion and difference in his approach.

Inially SRK was going to do a cameo in this movie but he backed out after his friend Karim Morani, Zoa Morani’s father, got embroiled in 2G scams…

No, no, nothing like that. Shahrukh was never going to do a cameo in this movie. He is producer of this movie and he will promote this movie. In fact he has shot for a promo song in this movie.

Did he ever visit the sets during the filming of the movie?

Luckily, he never visited the sets. He was getting live feedbacks from the sets every day. He knew of everything but at the same time he didn’t want us to feel pressurized because of his persona. And he used to trust Roshan a lot since the beginning.

You have worked with Aamir in your first movie and then again you are working with Shahrukh in your second movie. What qualities do they have? Do they have starry tantrums?

Both are very different. They have beautiful ways of working and they are just amazing people. They will never let you feel that you have just started. For me, they are just like trophies and we are running towards them to win. They are the victory.

What’s the USP of this movie?

It’s a school movie but at the same time it’s a complete movie. People are saying that it’s a youth film but it’s not. After watching this movie, even a 80 years old person would think that I have done something like that in my school. Time has changed but things are still the same.

Do you find difference between your personal schooling experience and the schooling setting used in ALWAYS KABHI KABHI?

Not at all. My character is lots of me when I was in school. we used to play pranks, used to be jugadu guys and always up to something. We are doing the same in this movie too. And just in one night the whole thing changes.

Since it’s a school saga, does the movie depict the journey from 8th to 12th standard?

No we all are in class 12th. It’s our last year at school. you are at last year of school but at the same time, first year of a bigger world. And the way Roshan has shot the movie, it’s very fresh.

What other future projects, you have in your hand?

I have been meeting people, reading scripts but I don’t want to rush into anything.

You must have had lots of fun on the sets. Can you tell us about any particular incident?

There was lots of fun on the sets. In one scene, Satya and Zoa were getting intimate sitting on the stairs and I told Roshan to let the camera running while me and Giselle popped in our head in between from upside down. That was prank but Roshan liked it and included it in movie.
