Ali Fazal’s Kandahar, also starring Gerard Butler, releases on May 26
Ali Fazal’s international project, Kandahar, has finally got a release date. The movie, which also stars Hollywood sensation Gerard Butler, will hit screens on May 26. This will be Ali’s first international release after Death on the Nile last year.
Ali says, “I look forward to it, as I do with all the movies I make. I can promise that the action is never-before-seen state-of-the-art stuff. Director Ric Roman Waugh is beating his own record and the team has really worked hard. It was a great pleasure for me to work with Gerard, and since it is looking at a worldwide release, we are hoping people across the globe enjoy it.”
Tom Harris, played by Gerard Butler, is an undercover CIA operative and is stuck deep in hostile territory in Afghanistan. He fights his way out, alongside his Afghan translator, to an extraction point in Kandahar, all the while avoiding the elite special force that is tasked with hunting them down. Bahador Foladi and Olivia-Mai Barrett play key roles.
Ali Fazal seems to be the latest Indian actor to become a regular in international cinema after Shashi Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Irrfan Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and—of course—Priyanka Chopra Jonas, our very own export!
