Actor Ali Fazal, on Wednesday, bagged a nomination for Best Actor at the Asia Content Awards for his portrayal of Ispit Nair in ‘Forget Me Not’, one of the four films in the Ray anthology on Netflix. Directed by Srijith Mukherji, the story is a modern interpretation of Satyajit Ray’s story ‘Bipin Chaudhary Ka Smriti Bhram.’ Ali plays the role of a cut-throat corporate shark who never forgets anything and has a memory of a computer.
On the nomination, Ali said, “Wow! This was totally unexpected. I am so humbled to receive this nomination and it means a lot to be recognized by ACA. A lot of great content was produced this year in Asia and to land a nomination amongst such an impressive lineup of films and actors is an honour.”
Nushrratt Bharuccha has also bagged the nomination for Best Actress for Ajeeb Daastaans on Netflix.
