Bollywood actor Ali Fazal had a fanboy moment when he got to work with Hollywood stars Kurt Russell, Vin Diesel and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, in the upcoming Hollywood action-thriller Furious 7.
“Kurt Russell..... he is a bloody legend,” he gushed when we asked him about his experience of shooting with the Hollywood veteran. “I have idolised him (Kurt Russell) and to chill with him on the sets while shooting was an incredible ­experience” he says.
Fazal tells us that he was ecstatic when Vin Diesel, who has starred in iconic films such as The Pacifier (2005) and Guardians of Galaxy (2014), told him that he loved his work. “Man...it was an amazing experience to work with him. He spoke to me and told me that he’d seen my work and ­appreciated it a lot,”he says.
In the film, Fazal also shares screen with Hollywood actor Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in 2013. “My first scene was with him. He made me feel very comfortable, and was an ­amazing person to work with,” says the 28-year-old.
