While their physical meeting might’ve been pushed by a year, Ali Fazal continues to stay in touch with Death on the Nile co-stars. The Kenneth Branagh directorial was expected to hit screens this October but will now open in September 2021. In a chat with a leading daily, Fazal spoke about his co-star Russel Brand, who kept him sane through the months of lockdown. On reading that Brand, in fact, took to Twitter and wrote, “Ali Fazal is a beautiful man, a terrific actor and had the best damn moustache on the movie.”
Based on Agatha Christie’s book by the same name, the film is an extension of Branagh’s last Christie outing – Murder on the Orient Express. This film stars Gal Gadot, Emma Mackey, Letitia Wright, Annette Bening with Branagh playing Hercule Poirot.
