Ali's Net Worth
Ali Basha is estimated to be worth around $10 million. He is a famous actor and comedian in the South of India, significantly contributing to his high net worth. Ali has been in over 1000 films since his debut in 1979.
Aside from being an actor, Ali started his political career in 2019 when he joined the Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP), a regional Indian political party. In 2022, Ali was appointed Electronic Media adviser for the Government of Andhra Pradesh. (1)
For all the years he had spent as one of the pillars of the Telugu film industry, it is not surprising that he could amass such a net worth.
Ali's Early Life
Before being a well-known actor in Telugu cinema, Ali Basha was just an ordinary boy from Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh, India. He came from a family with an average income.
Ali’s father, Mohammed Basha, was a middle-wage earner, working as a tailor, while his mother, Zaitun Bibi, was a homemaker. He has a younger brother named Khayyum, a prominent Indian actor, notably starring in Telugu cinema.
Despite their humble beginnings, the brothers had big dreams for their families. They saw that entering the showbiz industry made their dreams a reality. And they were exactly right, looking at what they currently have now.
It is still being determined whether or not Ali was able to finish school. Contradicting information from different sources claims that he was not able to go to school because of the lack of resources due to poverty, while others claim that he was able to reach high school. Despite the varying claims of sources, one thing is for sure, with or without proper education, Ali was able to make it into this world.
Ali's Wife and Family Life
The Indian comedian and actor are happily married to Zubeda Sultana Begum. The pair tied the knot in 1994 and has had three children. (2) The couple’s children are Mohd Abdul Subhan, Mohammed Fathima Rameezun, and Zuveria Meethi.
Coming from a family of middle-wage earners, Ali felt the need to have bigger dreams. But he knew in him that dreams without actions are nothing but fantasies, and because of that, he found ways on how he was going to achieve his dream of becoming an actor.
When he heard that the director of Seethakoka Chiluka, Bhagyaraj, was holding an audition in Chennai to look for the next star in his upcoming film, Ali did not hesitate and joined. Bhagyaraj saw great talent and perseverance in Ali and decided to cast him in the movie. This would be his first out of the thousands of films he would create in Telugu.
Later, Ali was introduced to Jit Mohan Mitra, who helped him get into “Nindu Noorellu” in 1979, his first movie to become a box office hit. As an actor, Ali was excellent but decided to explore the many aspects of the Tollywood Industry.
He met S.V. Krishna Reddy, a director who provided him with what he sought. S.V. Krishna gave him comedic roles, and because of that, his career took off, and he discovered his passion for providing laughter and entertainment. (3)
Eventually, Ali became a well-known comedic actor and was able to create a distinct style of speaking and mannerisms only attributable to him.
