Asif Ali shares his unforgettable experience of pawning gold for the first time
Popular actors Sif Ali, Vinayakan, and Sunny Wayne have graced the big screens with their starrer ‘Kasargold’, which released on Friday. In a recent promotional event for the film, actor Asif Ali opened up about his first encounter with pawning gold. He shared his fascinating story with RJ Raghav on Club FM’s Club Studio.
When asked about his first gold purchase, Asif Ali admitted that he couldn’t recall exactly what he bought, but he vividly remembered the momentous occasion. The incident took place when he was around 21-22 years old, after he had moved to Kochi with the aspiration of making it big in the Malayalam film industry. Modeling had been his first stepping stone into the world of cinema. Although he didn’t have a notable portfolio, he found himself being part of a photoshoot without any expectations.
During that time, he happened to have a gold ring in his possession. Asif Ali decided to pawn it and, to his surprise, he saw one of his own pictures from a previous photoshoot displayed behind the counter. The photo was showcased as part of an advertisement offering various prizes. As he was completing the transaction, the woman at the counter asked for his ID, and Asif Ali was dumbfounded as he glanced at his own image on the ad. Unexpectedly, the person next to him chuckled and remarked, “Why do you need an ID when your picture is right there on the advertisement?” This encounter marked Asif Ali’s first experience with gold pawning.
