Actor Ali Fazal, who was last seen in the surprise hit Fukrey Returns, will shoot his upcoming film Milan Talkies in his hometown, Lucknow.

Fazal is back from USA and now is gearing up for his next film, which will be extensively shot in Lucknow.

Interstingly, Fazal hails from Lucknow and is really excited about shooting the upcoming film in his hometown.

It feels great to be shooting here in my hometown in Lucknow as I can go back home after the shoot with my family and have some homemade food. Tigmanshu has done a proper recce of Lucknow and sometimes I feel he knows more locations than me even when this is my hometown. But I am very excited to start shooting for Milan Talkies. The team will start shooting from Monday and I would be joining them soon,” Ali said.

The shooting is expected to kickstart at the end of March and will feature Fazal in the lead role.

Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. Milan Talkies will release either in late 2018 or early 2019.
