According to reports, National Film Award-winning actors Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are set to join forces once again. The duo was last seen together in the Ritesh Batra-directed The Lunchbox (2013), which went on to win several national and international awards. Irrfan and Nawazuddin will reportedly come together to headline Honey Trehan’s upcoming thriller.

Sharing more details, a source close to the development reveals to an Indian tabloid, “Honey was supposed to direct Irrfan and Deepika Padukone for his directorial debut. When the project did not materialise, he joined forces with Nawazuddin for the crime thriller, Raat Akeli Hai. Now that the movie is wrapped up, the casting agent-turned-director has trained his focus on his next, an intense thriller with two male protagonists. Given the character sketch of the protagonists and the subject, he feels that Irrfan and Nawaz fit the bill perfectly.”

The source goes on to add that Honey has discussed the premise of the film with both the actors and they have agreed to come onboard. The filmmaker has begun the pre-production, but the schedule will be chalked out after taking Irrfan’s health into consideration. Further details will be worked out by next month.

Meanwhile, Irrfan Khan is currently busy shooting for Maddock Films’ Angrezi Medium, which is a sequel to his 2017 film Hindi Medium. The sequel also stars Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles. It is currently being shot in London.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, on the other hand, is gearing up to begin work on his next film, Bole Chudiyan. To be directed by his younger brother Shamas Siddiqui, the movie stars Tamannaah as the female lead.
