"It has been an interesting journey for me. At times I wonder whether I am really acting in Hindi films. Considering that I didn't know anyone over here and more importantly, being from Pakistan there was nothing going in my favor. I could only bank on my sincerity, talent and my hard work and I guess I have been pretty successful in doing that," Ali said.
Ali has a 'no kissing clause' in his contract while he does Bollywood films. "I have a clause that I won't be kissing on screen. In 'London Paris New York', kissing was essential in the film and so they got a body double to do it. I obviously think about what people are going to feel like back home (Pakistan) and what they are going to think," he said.
"She (wife) is very understanding. She sometimes comes down and joins me while I am here for my shoots. She likes my films... she loved me in 'London Paris New York'. My family has always been supportive of my acting career here," he said.
His next is YRF's 'Kill Dill' alongside Ranveer Singh, Govinda and Parineeti Chopra which is scheduled to release on September 5 and apparently he will make a cameo appearance in the sequel to 'Tere Bin Laden'.
