Indian actor Ali Fazal was super excited to meet Bollywood’s evergreen beauty Sridevi and Hollywood actor-director Dustin Hoffman at a gala dinner in Los Angeles earlier this week.

Ali, who is currently in the US to promote his film “Victoria & Abdul”, attended the annual Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) dinner.

It was a fan boy moment for Ali when he met Sridevi, and then he met Hoffman.

Talking about it in a statement, Ali said: “It was indeed a pleasant surprise to meet Sridevi there. It was a great evening, well spent with some of the biggest names from Hollywood. I told her how much I admire her as an actress and how till date, she is an inspiration for so many.

“We spoke about ‘Victoria & Abdul’ and she was excited to know about it. She even expressed her desire to see the film soon.”

Further on his experience, Ali said: “The HFPA is such a respected body of such dignified personnel. Then the icing on the cake was meeting legends like Dustin Hoffman. It was a first of its kind experience for me.”

HFPA has been making charitable contributions to entertainment related organisations with the proceeds from television rights to the Golden Globes.
