Talking about his Hollywood project Codename: Johnny Walker Ali said, “I had two projects that were to start in January and February respectively. But, UK is in lockdown again, and some of our cast members, including those who featured in Game of Thrones, reside there. Filming this movie will demand a bio-bubble. Our locations are not restricted to America or the UK alone, since it is based [on the] Iraq War. Locales will need to be zeroed in on with precision. The project has been pushed to the end of the year. We should be able to roll in September,” he told Mid Day.
