Ali Fazal has been constantly making a splash with his international projects and has worked with some of the best talent from the west in the past. Just last year, it was announced that the actor has been roped in to play one of the leads alongside Gerard Butler in the action packed film Kandahar, which is set to release in 2023. Now the actor will next be seen in Afghan Dreamers which is being directed by two time Oscar winning director, Bill Guttentag. Bill has won the prestigious Academy title for his two short films, You Don’t Have to Die and Twin Towers.
A source close to the actor confirmed the same adding, “Shoot for Afghan Dreamers recently began in Morocco and will be a 50 days schedule, with the majority of the film being shot across Morocco and Budapest.” The film is the true story about the program that was started by Afghan tech entrepreneur, Roya Mahboob in 2017 as a way to help young women develop their skills in the field of science and technology, despite a heavily patriarchal society in the country they hail from. The film throws light on the chaotic, sometimes dangerous backdrop of the country’s politics.
