DriveTime Assistant Manni attended the pre screening of forthcoming film ‘Victoria and Abdul’ and names it ‘A must watch! Comical, moving, a lost story uncovered.’

Based on the book Victoria & Abdul: The True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant by Indian author Shrabani Basu, the film explores the “hidden” true story of the unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and her humble servant from India Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal).

The upcoming biographical drama sees academy award winner Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love) reunite with Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena, Mrs. Henderson Presents) and return to the role of Queen Victoria.

Portraying the role of the young clerk Abdul Karim – also known as the Munshi – is Indian stage and film star Ali Fazal. Victoria & Abdul also features a strong line-up of leading film, television, and stage personalities including Eddie Izzard who performs the role of Bertie, Prince of Wale, Tim Pigott-Smith (The Jewel in the Crown) who performs the role of Sir Henry Ponsonby, and BAFTA Award winner Adeel Akhtar (Murdered by My Father) who portrays Abdul’s loyal friend Mohammed, condensing a star-studded cast.
