Ali Fazal-starrer Victoria & Abdul gets two Oscar nominations
Los Angeles: Indian actor Ali Fazal and veteran British actor Judi Dench-starrer "Victoria & Abdul" has been nominated for the Oscars in two categories.
The period drama, directed by Stephen Frears, has received nods for Best Costume Design, and Best Make-up and Hairstyling.
The film is Fazal's first major international project in which he played Indian servant, Abdul to Dench's Queen Victoria.
