I am trying to get the owner of a NFT in solidity & web3 by calling the Contract and the token id

In Web3.js-v1.3.5 I've tried this so far, but the result isn't ever calledBack!

How can I handle this? and how can I write this in solidity as well ?

        var abi_ = [ {
        "constant": true,
        "inputs": [
                "name": "_tokenId",
                "type": "uint256"
        "name": "ownerOf",
        "outputs": [
                "name": "",
                "type": "address"
        "payable": false,
        "stateMutability": "view",
        "type": "function"

    const smartContractAddress = "0x495f947276749ce646f68ac8c248420045cb7b5e"
    const contract = new web3.eth.Contract(abi_, smartContractAddress)
    let owner = await contract.methods.ownerOf('91338127118827779192862936396890434745733899848224782300810335984505495486465').call()
    //Code never reaches here

Try this abi:


You forgot to put the owner address of the Contract in "from" place:

var myContract = new web3.eth.Contract(abi, '0x495f947276749ce646f68ac8c248420045cb7b5e', {
    from: '0x1234567890123456789012345678901234567891', //<--- here 
    gasPrice: '20000000000'
