The OG Uzma auntie has blessed you with her aesthetic and you don't disappoint, holding your own among this galaxy of stars. She's proud and so am I".

Death On The Nile is based on Agatha Christie's novel of the same name. The story is about a detective (played by Kenneth Branagh) on a mission to crack the series of murders on board a Nile cruiser mysteriously linked to a love triangle.
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot will front the mystery thriller. The film boasts of an impressive star cast including Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Armie Hammer, Russell Brand, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, Sophie Okonedo, Emma Mackey, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright. Death On The Nile is slated to release on October 23 this year.
The upcoming American project is Ali’s third commercial venture overseas after the 2017 film Victoria And Abdul and the 2015 film Furious 7.
Richa and Ali were set to tie the knot in April this year but the plans were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
