Asif Ali gets a new name after his role in Uyare

Uyare gave us goose bumps especially the scene where Pallavi writhes in pain after an acid attack. The debut directorial of Manu Ashokan was more of an eye-opener to those who feel demotivated in life. The film had Parvathy playing an ambitious girl named Pallavi whose dreams were ruthlessly clipped due to an acid attack by her boy friend Govind, convincingly played by Asif Ali. In fact, after watching the film, Asif Ali got many hate messages. So much was the impact of his action on the audience. Asif Ali says that after the film became a huge success, people started calling him 'Acid Ali'. Well, that can be treated as a compliment as it is a testimony of his acting skill.
