The taken trilogy is just coming and you surely do not want to miss it. The Taken TV series will release in September 2016, and it stars our very own Ali Kazmi.
The fierce Sikander from Jackson Heights says he plays one of the good guys in the forthcoming TV series.
I play Marzoki, a fast talking, sharp, quirky analyst, shared Ali with Images, while on the sets of Taken.
Ali Kazmi stated that the Taken series will sightsee how and why the main character Bryan Mills became who he was.
I am proud to be a part of the main cast. I play one of the good guys, no ridiculous casting or dressing. I’m really ecstatic to be representing South Asians in a good light and I’m happy that NBC is taking bigger and better steps for more diverse smart casting! The world is full of so many colours, why not the casting for TV, so it’s a step in the right direction. Ali stated
The star has also been present in the lead role of a Canadian short film titled Coffee at Laundromat”, which has been selected for the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner. The film examines the troubles of identity and human rights of immigrants in other countries, even a country as wonderful as Canada.
The director/writer Maahi Kaur searches these grave matters as “colourful people [interact] at the local laundromat and what chaos and fun ensues when my character Raj is thrust into the mix,” explains Ali.
Ali has been nominated for the Best Actor award at the World Music and Independent Film Festival (WMIFF) 2016 in Washington DC for his performance in the film, which was also shown at IFFSA, the biggest South Asian film fest in Canada.
