Ali with Mustafa and Michael

Actor Ali Fazal got an exclusive opportunity to workout with none other than Olympian Michael Phelps. The latter who is in India was at a workout session in New Delhi on Wednesday and Ali flew down to train with him.

The actor issued an official statement about it and said, "It doesn’t get any bigger than Micheal Phelps. The man is a legend and has achieved tons in his career. 28 medals from one single athlete is no short of legendary. When Mustafa (Ahmed, trainer) told me about this opportunity I didn’t even have to think twice. It’s a great opportunity to train with someone who is a fitness inspiration for so many.  It's all thanks to Mustafa that this is being made possible. Personally with Mustafa. For me, it's been quite a journey to fitness. Meeting Micheal was a huge fanboy moment this when I first met him in Delhi. Anyone who is familiar with his work, which I'm sure is, would get the sheer importance of this meeting and training session with him."

Ali has been training under Mustafa Ahmed, one of Bollywood's most iconic trainers whose client list boasts of names like Hrithik Roshan and Mahesh Babu. In fact, Ali also beefed up for his role in Mirzapur due to Mustafa's training.
