The actor, who attended the pre-Oscars bash with girlfriend Richa Chadha, hung out with Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell and even managed a sneaky picture with Leonardo DiCaprio at the party.

Actor Ali Fazal has been enjoying a stellar day. While the world has been caught up in the rush of the Oscar awards ceremony, the actor enjoyed the entire show in person, with partner Richa Chadha for company.
Fazal, whose Victoria & Abdul was nominated for the Best Makeup & Hair award, was part of the pre-Oscar bash. Needless to say, the two had a good time. But the clicks on their pictures spiked up with the sighting of Leonardo DiCaprio at the party.
Ok i swear i didnt plan this photo... hahahahahahahahah... but Jack Dawson aka Leo seems to have photobombed this selfie.. spot if you can.. but besides the little crowd, it was an honour to be present at the WME Party last night.. with greats in the room.. congratulated Mr Adrian brody on his wonderful performance in PeakyBlinders, Stared back at Drake because , arey woh richa ko taak raha thha.. toh maine bhi ghoora. And i guess the reason i was so phaila hua was because it was home territory - my agency throwing the pre oscar party last night. I think all the hip hop crowd was there fo sure. Wait, pharrel was missing .. he got to play holi elsewhere. ðÂÂÂðÂÂÂðÂÂÂðÂÂÂ . . . . . . #victoriaandabdul #oscars2018 #oscars #oscars90 #academy #awards #nomination #PreOscar #life #allstar #universalstudios #keanureeves #halleberry #usher #blackpanther #garyoldman #cast #newsroom #tobymaguire #spiderman #peakyblinders
While the two did not plan for the photo to end up so, it is an added advantage to have Jack Dawson (DiCaprio's character in Titanic, 1997) make an appearance.
In addition, Fazal managed to sneak in a conversation with Sam Rockwell, who went on to win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Incidentally, it is Rockwell's first award.
I predicted this i think heheh.. so happy for #samrockwell .. this is huge. This is change.. and its happening.. i knew it i knew it!!! Kudos mister.. i can proudly say 1st award to someone i know.. yayyyyy.. #bestsupportingactor #threebillboardsoutsideebbingmissouri #oscars . . . . . #academyawards #academy #talk #actorlife
Although it was not all celebration for Fazal. The actor's film missed out on the golden prize, with the award going to The Darkest Hour. However, the actor found a way to amuse himself through the dejection.
Well well well.same family .got one step closer to the dream,in that my face peeped out briefly from among the greats.. #desiciting indeed! #JaiHind ! Paas to pahuche! Ek din le aayenge oscar uncle ko apne yaan.. koi nai.. sending love to the winnersss.. #oscars18 #AcademyAward pic.twitter.com/rqMZHp1iju— Ali Fazal M (@alifazal9) March 5, 2018
To be fair to him, the actor was game enough to be happy to have shared the space with the other contenders. Hopefully, the next time will see Fazal have a better outing.
