On working with Gal Gadot, Ali is excited, although he has not yet met her. “I haven’t met her. I have only sat down with my director. I went for costume trials.” About the big line-up of the film, he said: “I never get intimidated by the cast. I am not playing an Indian in this film, so my biggest moment came when my look test worked and Kenneth really liked it. Some actors think they are good, still things don’t work out. We constantly need validation from other people. This was good validation for me.”
