“Finishing Serious Men. I mean I knew this, but the impact is truly felt when the sound mixing is more or less done. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is brilliant in the film!” the filmmaker wrote on his Twitter handle.

Thanking Mishra, Nawazuddin Siddiqui wrote, “Thank you so much, Sudhir Mishra Sir. I feel fortunate enough to have worked with you and the process was really wonderful.”

Bankrolled by Bombay Fables and Cineraas Entertainment, Serious Man tells the tale of a crafty slum dweller who cons the country into believing that his 10-year-old son is a genius, only to realise that the only victim of his dangerous game is his son.
