Ali Zafar, the international heartthrob, shared a video of him and his friends chilling when they were younger
In this video, it seems as though his friends are shooting an ‘interview’ with Ali Z. The ‘interview’ suggests that Ali Z looks like Brad Pitt. However, Ali being as humble as ever lets the audience be the judge of that. (As the audience, we can all agree, he’s left Brad Pitt behind, haina?) 17-year-old Ali was apparently also getting loads of calls from Hollywood – but oh, he was too busy for those. Modeling, dramas and a singing career were beckoning him instead. Here’s the absolutely adorable video he shared:
My old friend Ahmed shared this clip with me when we were just 17 and all this we just a dream. Life is so cool. pic.twitter.com/JhotYhIPNJ

This is that type of video that perfectly captures the absolute madness and wailapan of being 17.
But in all seriousness, how awesome is this video? Little did any of them know how insanely popular Ali Zafar would become. A simple video back then really did become real for him, and that warms our hearts. Also a quick shoutout to the guy behind Ali, who ends the video saying ‘Jahan tak mera sawal hain, mein aik ordinary sa banda hoon.’ It’s because of friends like you ke log stars ban jatay hain.
Ali Zafar’s fans were quick to respond to this
Aww… this is cute, who knows when your dreams will be fulfilled in the best way…. And the best part is aap ne ye sab 'akele' hi kr liya?

You don’t become a rockstar without the kind of self-belief that Ali Z has
Hahaha so you knew it already that you are going to get FAME!!

Some people asked the right question
Why so cute?

And this person made a very keen observation
Was you even born with same looks? I am surprised long time you face cuts are remain same.

And clearly, awkward teenage years only apply to us ‘average’ folk
Wow you never even went through an awkward phase in your life. Dayyumm ?

There must have been some dream you had when you were younger. Revisit it. If it isn’t completely crazy, try and chase it. This is clearly a good reminder to never let go of your dreams. Ali Zafar didn’t, and dekho wo kidhar pohanch gaya.
