The duo will deliver a talk on the challenges associated with being a non-American actor working in the West.
Pinto will also attend the Australian premiere of her film Love Sonia while Ali has been elected as the jury member for the Short Film Awards category at the festival.

"It's always interesting to talk to people of different countries and background. It gives you great perspective. This in fact is my first time to Australia and to get a chance to interact with film lovers and film students on a topic about crossing over is exciting and there's so much to speak about.
"I'm looking forward to do this talk and discussion alongside someone talented like Freida," the Victoria and Abdul star said in a statement.

Ali Fazal is currently working on his forthcoming films, Prasthanam alongside Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala and Tigmanshu Dhulia's Milan Talkies
