It’s summertime in India and there’s one thing most beloved to this season. Touted as the king of fruits, Mango holds a special place for all Indians in the summer menu of all houses. For those who have seen Victoria and Abdul last year, would definitely remember the classic funny scene that takes place when Ali Fazal’s on-screen character, Abdul Karim judges the mango sent as a gift from India for Queen Victoria herself played by Judi Dench to be a bit off, in the sense that the fruit is riped.
On screen, Ali’s character gushes, that the Mango is a bit off, thus wanting his queen to try the mango in its perfect form. Since the trailer even had been released that scene definitely became one of the most memorable parts from the film.
As an ode to his friendship with Dame Judi Dench off screen, Ali had the sweetest gesture for his co-star. Ali packed and sent the most delectable Alphonso mangoes for Judi and got it delivered to her residence in London. Now that’s truly a way to keep one’s friendship and a cute gesture from the actor!
