Ali Fazal is making great strides when it comes to his Hollywood career as he bagged a coveted project opposite Wonder Woman Gal Gadot last year. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Ali Fazal has been working on Death On The Nile with an extremely talented cast of Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Sex Education's Emma Mackey, Russell Brand, Annette Bening, Sophie Okonedo among others. The film is a follow-up to Branagh's 2017 film Murder on the Orient Express. In a recent interview with PTI, Branagh revealed what it was like working with Ali Fazal. 

He said, "Ali was a joy to work with, an absolute joy. He’s a total pro. He’s a real details man. He was completely caught up in how the character looked sounded and was able to be very precise, but also very playful. He could improvise when I asked him to improvise." 

Branagh added that the 'Victoria & Abdul' actor was also popular among the cast. "He has a strong sense of humour. He is energetic and physically very adroit, so he was involved in both dancing and in action pieces. So his gifts like that were great. He was a fantastic ensemble player. He was incredibly popular with our cast, they loved him,” Branagh revealed.
