Actors Freida Pinto and Ali Fazal, who are working in international films, are the key guests at the upcoming Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2018. The two will be delivering a talk to Australian audiences on ‘How Indian actors are making it big in Hollywood’. This cross cultural topic will have them expressing their views and opinions on the challenges and the need to overcome the stereotypes associated with them for being a non American actor working in the West.
“Freida, who’s flying in from Los Angeles, her current home will also be attending the Australian premiere of her film, Love Sonia and Ali has been elected as the jury member for the Short Film Awards category at the festival,” says a source.
Ali Fazal said, “It’s always interesting to talk to people of different countries and background. It gives you great perspective. This in fact is my first time to Australia and to get a chance to interact with film lovers and students on a topic about crossing over is exciting. There’s so much to speak about. I remember during the promotions and post release of Victoria And Abdul, I spoke to people with such varied backgrounds. Everyone had such interesting ideas of cinema and its role. So I’m looking forward to do this talk and discussion alongside someone talented like Freida.”
The panel discussion will also have director Tabrez Noorani, director of Love Sonia. The discussion will take place at Deakin Edge in Melbourne on August 11.
