The department of comedy and character acting got a new definition in Tollywood- Thanks to Ali. A talented actor who doesn’t confine to just essentially comedy, Ali has acted in more than 800 films right from childhood. He is a recipient of honorary doctorate award for his tremendous acting skills.
Ali was quite interested in acting right from childhood and this interest took him to Chennai to approach Bharatiraja- one of the top directors in Tamil Cinema. Bharatiraja was impressed with kid Ali’s acting zeal and he immediately offered him a role in Sitakoka Chiluka. After the success of the film and Ali got noticed as one of the noted child artistes, Ali had to wait for the right breakthrough as a full time grown up actor. It was S.V Krishna Reddy who gave Ali the right break in early 90s. He casted him as Hero in Yama Leela- a mythological comedy and that film was an amazing hit. Ali’s funny histrionics and excelling in sentimental scenes was quite instrumental in the success of the film. After this heroic success, Ali did not confine to just lead roles but he showed his magnum opus in comedy roles. Nobody can forgot the comedy he did in Jamba Lakadi Pamba, Hello Brother, Alibaba Aradozen Dongalu, Tholi Prema, Aadi, Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammayi, Super, Deshamuduru, Chirutha and even the recent hit Attarintiki Daredi. He is a regular for Puri Jagannadh films and has a unique comical role in each of them. A best friend and close associate of Pawan Kalyan- there is no film of his which doesn’t have Ali in it- right from Tholi Prema. This shows the brilliance of Ali not only on screen but also off screen.
Ali generates laughter not on silver screen but also in TV shows. His show on ETV- Ali 369 has become a huge hit where he imitates all the veteran Tollywood stars admirably. IQlikMovies wishes the comedian par excellence- Ali a very happy birthday and a great year ahead with films and more laughter!
