The actor has been nominated for the Best Actor in the Asia Content Awards for playing Ipsit Nair in Ray.
Bollywood actor Ali Fazal has bagged the nomination for Best Actor at the Asia Content Awards (ACA). The actor has been chosen for his role as Ipsit Nair in Forget Me Not, one of the four films in the Ray anthology on Netflix. The film, directed by Srijith Mukherji, showed Ali as a cut-throat corporate shark with a memory of a computer. Its story was a modern interpretation of Satyajit Ray’s story 'Bipin Chaudhary Ka Smriti Bhram.’
Soon after the announcement of the nominations, the actor said, “This was totally unexpected. I am so humbled to receive this nomination and it means a lot to be recognised by ACA. A lot of great content was produced this year in Asia and to land, a nomination amongst such an impressive lineup of films and actors is an honour.”
This award this year is run by the Busan International Film Festival's Asian Contents & Film Market. This year, the nominations were dominated by Korean dramas and Netflix originals.
