Nominations for the Asia Content Awards were recently announced and Ali Fazal received the Best Actor nomination for his portrayal of Ipsit 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 take on Satyajit Ray’s story ‘Bipin Chaudhary Ka Smriti Bhram’. Ali plays the role of a cutthroat corporate shark who never forgets and remembers a computer.
In response to the nomination, he said: “Wow! This was totally unexpected. I am so humble to receive this nomination and it means a lot to be recognized by the ACA. A lot of great content has been produced in Asia this year and to land a nomination among such an impressive line-up of films and actors is an honor. “
