‘Fanaa’ child actor Ali Haji all set to work with Hrithik Roshan in ‘Super 30’
18-year-old Ali will be seen in the biopic ‘Super 30’ alongside Hrithik Roshan, who is playing mathematician Anand Kumar. Talking about his role in the film, Ali Haji told Mumbai Mirror, ” I’m playing this rich brat from an influential family in Bihar who wants to join IIT and despite being tutored in a high end coaching academy, wants Anand Kumar to prep him up for the entrance exam. I’ve been shooting in Mumbai for five days now and am really excited about working with my childhood idol Hrithik.”(Also read: Tiger Shroff bonds with idol Hrithik Roshan over passion for dancing)
Young Ali had met Hrithik briefly when the actor was rehearsing for ‘Dhoom 2’. Talking about his first meeting with idol Hrithik, he reminisced,“I would go there for readings and look tests while Hrithik was rehearsing for a ‘Dhoom 2’ song in the basement. I just went up and greeted him. He was really nice but had no idea then that I was playing Aamir and Kajol’s son(in Fanaa). I recently reminded Hrithik of my fanboy moment on the set and he was surprised I remembered the brief meeting.”
In order to bring authenticity to his character Ali has taken up dialect coaching to get his Bihari accent right and will be soon shooting with Hrithik Roshan in July. As a child actor, Ali has also done some memorable roles in films like ‘Partner’ and Ta Ra Rum Pum’ among others.
