Actor Ali Fazal recently changed his bio on his social media handles and added 'tech evengalist' to the description. Well, even as the Fukrey Returns (2017) actor has been busy navigating Hollywood, he is also investing in technology. 

Ali is partnering with his childhood buddy Ankit Kumar, who has created an app that Ali will soon be revealing. The application is named Balance and will be an assistant to the urban broke millennials, helping them save money and grow it better than it would in a traditional bank account. 

Speaking about the app, Ali said, "I’ve been a science and math guy all my life. Here was a genius friend of mine Ankit Kumar along with Abhishek Malik, co-founder (CTO) [IIT Kanpur] came up with this brilliant idea. They have developed an app because the world is changing and people love pushing buttons. We want something quick and easy and we don't want middlemen handling that for us.This app will help shape a better future for the current lot and the next lot of young entrepreneurs, individuals, artistes, corporates, students, even under-age students, schoolkids, you name them. I got on board this app as one of the partners and shareholders. And we look forward to bring this in with the tide of this new season."

In the coming days, Ali will promote the app on his social media platforms and in other ways.

On the film front, Ali will soon begin shooting for Tigmanshu Dhulia's next, Milan Talkies.
