Mumbai: Actor Ali Asgar, popular for his comical act as 'Dadi' in ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’, has landed a role in the quirky comedy film ‘Meet The Patels’.
In the movie, Ali will play a character named Doctor Thanawala.
Talking about the role, he said: "Dolly Dadi has received immense love and respect all over, but I assure you that Doctor Thanawala will unveil another dimension which was somewhat hidden within me."
"Let's hope I get the same love and affection for Doctor Thanawala as much as I am getting for Dolly Dadi."
‘Meet The Patels’ director Saurabh Verma feels that "playing this character will unleash the untapped talent" of Ali.
"It will also introduce him in a different avatar away from Dolly Dadi, which has given him such immense popularity. It's a difficult job but we will be able to achieve it," said Varma of ‘Mickey Virus’ fame.
Produced by Krian Media, ‘Meet The Patels’ also features Shiv Pandit, Shazahn Padamsee, Ketan Singh and Vaishali Desai.
