Let's scroll down to find out 5 things that you may not know about Ali Fazal, the No.40 in Top 50 Most Desirable Men 2018!

1. Ali Fazal Fell Into The Film Industry By Accident

Surprisingly, being an actor was not Ali Fazal's dream since the beginning. In fact, the actor wanted to become a professional basketball player when he was a student at The Doon School in Dehra Dun. Basketball was his biggest dream but unfortunately, he could no longer join the team after suffering a hand injury. Later, Ali decided to enroll at a production school to fill his spare time, but still, he had no aspirations to become a Bollywood star. He even studied engineering following his parents' advice, but then he changed his course to economics.

2. Ali Fazal Has A Golden Heart

Since day one, Ali Fazal has never stopped doing charitable works in a variety of ways. In 2015, he performed in a show hosted by Fortis called 'Cancerthon', aiming to raise money for children who have to battle against cancer. In remembrance of his Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker, the actor had invited car enthusiasts from across the country for a drag race in Lonavla. Ali is not being in the Top 50 Most Desirable Men for no reason: This person has both talents and even a heart of gold.

3. Ali Fazal Has Many Hobbies

Whenever Ali does not have to keep up with his work schedule, the actor loves to spend time on sports, especially basketball and hockey. He also coaches and plays basketball with children near his house in his leisure time. His other hobbies also include playing the guitar and watching movies.

4. Ali Fazal Got A Once-In-A-Lifetime Chance To Star Alongside Dame Judi Dench

As for someone who has just started in Hollywood, getting a leading role in a movie starring Dame Judi Dench is such a big deal. Ali Fazal is that lucky man who got the role in Victoria and Abdul, portraying the man from Agra who later become one of Queen Victoria's closest confidantes. Despite being the newbie in Hollywood, the 32-year-old actor excellently steals every scene in the movie, gaining positive reviews from the critics.

5. Ali Fazal Was A Part Of 'Bollywood Hero' Mini-Series

The actor has predominantly worked in films throughout his career. However, he also took part in Bollywood series once in a while. In 2009, Ali starred in IFC’s Bollywood Hero mini-series. In addition, he also joined two other web series, Bang Baaja Baaraat in 2015 and Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa in 2016.

On a related note, Top 50 Most Desirable Men this year also consists of the most dashing men in India, including Prathamesh Maulingkar, Ranveer Singh, Vijay Devarakonda and more. Vicky Kaushal, who recently rose to fame with remarkable performances in Sanju and Raazi, has eventually grabbed the top spot.
