In fact, Salman Khan had even announced on the show that Ali had bagged director Kabir Khan's latest film. But why didn't we see him in the movie? Ali, who was in Lucknow recently, tells us, "I was offered to play the role of Chand Nawab,
which was eventually done by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.But then Bigg Boss got extended by a month, and by that time, the film had already gone on floors. Once I came out of the house, Kabir sir offered me other roles in the film, but they weren't that prominent. Salman sir, who I consider my mentor, also then suggested that I work with Kabir in his upcoming projects. Inshallah, that will happen soon."
