Well, looks like Ali Fazal skipped the ceremony. Yet, check out the video below:

He also shared a picture with Academy winner Rock Samwell, who won the best supporting actor award for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Meanwhile, Ali Fazal was recently in news as he attended the pre-Oscars party with girlfriend and actress Richa Chadha. And guess what happened? The lovers' cute selfie was accidentally photobombed by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Ali shared a selfie with Richa Chadha from the pre-Oscars bash and wrote, "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. [sic]

Talking about their relationship, Richa Chadha told a leading daily: "I don't think marriage is on the cards for now. We are chilling right now. We will go very slow with this relationship. Right now, all our dates for this year are booked, otherwise someone or the other would have given away this news. What happens with social media is reactionary. [These days] people just read a headline and react. This half knowledge is very dangerous."
