It is known that Ali has the distinction of acting in the majority of Powerstar Pawan Kalyan's films. He revealed that except for Pawan's debut film 'Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi' and his last film 'Agnyaathavaasi', he acted in all his films. When he was asked how the friendship developed between the two, he said that he used to visit Megastar Chiranjeevi's house often before Pawan made his debut as a hero. Whenever he used to wait for Chiru at his house, Pawan Kalyan used to talk to him like a friend. He used to enquire about the films he is working. That way a good friendship developed between the two.
Ali said that he and Brahmanandam garu will be among the guest list of Chiranjeevi for any occasion. He also said that he receives a big bottle of Avakaya every year from Chiru's house and a box of mangoes from Pawan Kalyan. He said he did not receive mangoes from Pawan this year because he is busy with politics this year. He hoped that he would receive mangoes from him next year. When he asked about his political stint, he gave the last punch that "Intense politics are going on at my home with my wife".
