Bollywood actor Ali Fazal shut down a user calling him out for performing pilgrimage and visiting Makkah and Madina at the end of his shoot in Saudi Arabia. Recently, Fazal had posted his pictures of performing Umrah and visiting the two Holy sites of Islam in Saudi Arabia.
He was seen standing with a face mask on in the Grand Mosque of Makkah. “To Medina and then Mecca! What a way to end my shoot! I am truly blessed I think in many ways. I like to think at least. This one was for Amma and Nana. Their loss will never heal me .. maybe healing isn’t the answer. Seeking is. We’ll find out. But I prayed n I prayed for all those around me. Family, friends, and all the people in need of love. There are just too many,” he began in a lengthy Instagram post.

Ali Fazal receives criticism
He was in Saudi Arabia for the shoot of his Hollywood venture, Kandahar. Afterward, he went to perform the pilgrimage. A social media user objected to Ali Fazal performing pilgrimage while acting is considered Haram in Islam. The user asked him to quit acting.
To which the actor replied, “Arey budhbak tu insta pe hai. Yahaan sirf photo video dalte hain. Akal maari gai hai tumhari? Apni phone screen ko dekhna band karo. Sab set ho jayega dekhna (hey duffer you are on Instagram. Only pics and videos are supposed to be uploaded here. Have you lost it? Stop staring at your phone screen, everything will be alright).”
