As we all know that Bole Chudiyan was announced a couple of months ago. Right after the official announcement of the film came the news that popular television actress Mouni Roy, who successfully transitioned from television to films and made her silver screen debut with the Akshay Kumar starrer Gold (2018), was set to play the female lead opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the movie.

Ever since Mouni Roy opted out of the film at the last moment, the makers had been trying to find her suitable replacement. The latest we hear that the team has finally found the female lead for Bole Chudiyan. According to reports, debutant director Shamas Siddiqui and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are happy with their newest find as she does not need any acting workshops to get into her character in the film. The makers will be announcing her name soon.

Bole Chudiyan, also starring filmmaker and Anurag Kashyap in an important role, is scheduled to enter cinemas towards the end of the year.
