Ali Fazal, who married Richa Chadha 2.5 years ago and hosted the wedding celebrations earlier this month, in his latest Instagram post, revealed the Judi Dench connection to his wedding outfits. Ali Fazal, who worked with legendary actor Judi Dench in the 2017 film Victoria And Abdul, mentioned that she “summoned” Ali Fazal to work with designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla back in 2017. The duo designed Ali Fazal’s angarkha, that he wore for his wedding festivities. “Thank you Abu Sandeep ! You both are a cracker of a team. I remember Judi summoning me to work with you all in 2017 and I was like, wait they have to wanna work with me, its themmmm… Anyhoo, we shall break bread soon. Love Ali,” wrote the 3 Idiots actor.
He began the note, accompanied by some wedding festivities pictures, with the these words: “I think art has its way of finding the right spot in history. Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla gave us access to culture and heritage and art and skill all through our celebrations. Starting with my favourite – the classic angarkha. After a few trials and tailoring and exchanging notes we arrived at this wonderful piece.”
Victoria And Abdul was based on Shrabani Basu’s book Victoria And Abdul: The True Story Of The Queen’s Closet Confidant, a story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s long rule.
