Renowned Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has joined forces with Ritesh Batra, the director of his critically claimed film The Lunchbox, once again. The actor, whose latest offering Babumoshai Bandookbaaz opened to positive response this Friday, has confirmed the news.
Upon being asked if the reports of him teaming up with Batra are true, the actor said, ” That is right. I am starring in the next film of Ritesh Batra. It’s an intense subject and totally different from The Lunchbox.”
The actor, who played the second fiddle to Irrfan Khan in The Lunchbox, didn’t forget to add that he is playing the main role this time. “Unlike The Lunchbox where I wasn’t really the central character, this time I play the lead,” says Nawaz.
Though it hasn’t been confirmed officially, some insiders say that the film will be titled as Photographer wherein Nawaz will play an amateur street photographer.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui currently has a number of projects in his hand. Besides Photographer, he will also be seen in films like Manto, Chanda Mama Door Ke, Carbon, Phobia 2 and Lion.
