Names like Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Chitrangada Singh have surfaced in relation to the next Fast & Furious film. According to reports, Deepika was offered a role, but couldn’t take it up due to her busy Bollywood schedule.

Now, in what comes as a surprise, Ali Fazal of Fukrey fame, has become part of the Vin Diesel-starrer. He has already shot for a portion of the film in Atlanta. “Yes, I have shot for a bit. And I still have some bits left. It’s just a cameo, but it’s great fun,” says Ali, who returned from the US on Saturday night.

His scene, it seems, features all the main actors — Diesel, Paul Walker and Michelle Rodriguez. He will join the team again in Abu Dhabi in January to shoot the remaining scenes.

“I sent across (my audition) and I got a call. I was like, ‘Why not?’ Yet, initially, I was not going to do it since I was busy with my work in India. However, things worked out,” says the actor, who also has Hindi films like Baat Ban Gayi and Sonali Cable in the pipeline.
