This Saturday, &pictures is all set to take you on a freaking laughter riot with the World Television Premiere of ‘Freaky Ali’. Touted as the perfect family entertainer, the story traces an underdogs inspiring journey from a small basti to becoming a ‘gulf’ a.k.a ‘golf’ sensation. Directed by Sohail Khan, the light-hearted comedy features the versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Arbaaz Khan and Amy Jackson in the lead along with Nikitin Dheer, Seema Biswas and Asif Basra essaying pivotal roles. So, this 16th May at 9 pm, get set for a freaky roller coaster ride with Freaky Ali.

Speaking about the idea behind the movie, Director Sohail Khan said, “When we were in the initial build up phase of the movie, we came across an insight about golf where people said that it is the game of the elite and can only be played by them. This struck us so hard that through our movie we wanted to break this myth and establish golf as a common man’s game. With Ali’s character we wanted to inspire people to keep striving for their dreams no matter what their social backgrounds are because in the end your talent is the one that bears fruit. Hope the viewers enjoy watching Freak Ali this 16th May on &pictures as it’s dedicated to the freak in each one of us who tried to achieve success from nothing.”

Filled with ample dose of masala, the 2016 film narrates the story of Ali, who makes a living by selling undergarments and extorting money along with best friend Maqsood (Arbaaz Khan). However, his fate turns when he discovers golf accidently while collecting money from a businessman playing the game. Looking at his fabulous shots, his neighbour Kishanlal (Asif Basra) who is a caddy by profession trains Ali to be a professional golf player. With time, Ali starts topping the charts with his game, which starts to annoy the prevailing golf champion Vikram (Jas Arora). Vikram challenges Ali in the Golf championship and tries to put Ali down by stating Golf is a rich man’s game. To prove Vikram wrong and break the stereotype, Ali puts in all his efforts in winning the championship.

To witness Ali’s fun filled journey, hop on to the hilarious roller coaster ride with the World Television Premiere of ‘Freaky Ali’ on 16th May at 9 pm only on &pictures!
