Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of those actors of Bollywood who never fails to impress the audience with his performance. The actor has carved a niche for himself and with each and every film, we are getting to see a different Nawaz altogether. Nawaz has majorly done serious roles so far. His last release was Thackeray in which he played the titular role of late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray. The actor, as usual, received rave reviews for his performance. But now, Nawaz is all set to treat his fans with his different avatar.
Nawaz will be playing a lead role in the romantic movie Bole Chudiyan. The movie is the directorial debut of Nawaz's brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui. As per reports, Shraddha Kapoor has been approached to play the female lead opposite Nawaz, however, she hasn't given her nod due to prior commitments.
Nawaz took to Twitter to share the news of his next film. ''Challenging roles have always been my thing, now getting into a romantic zone will be much fun. #BoleChudiyan,'' he wrote.
Meanwhile, when TOI enquired Shamas regarding the project, he revealed that the romantic drama is set in Nawaz's home-town Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. "I am happy that Nawaz bhai has given his nod to my script. I have worked for more than a year on it. As everyone knows, he is very choosy with his scripts and wouldn’t do a film just because I am his brother. Bole Chudiyan is a romantic drama set in our home-town of Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. We are in talks with several actors to play the female lead in the film,'' said the director.
Recently in an interview, Nawaz spoke about his choices of films and Box office pressure. The actor said, "I don't care about the box office. If I did, I would've done song and dance films throughout my career, the ones which go on to become hits. But today it is being perceived that you're a good actor only if you give a 100-crore hit.''
"Since it's perceived you're an actor only when you give hit films, I feel I should start doing films where there's comedy with a 'tadka' of content. I can do the films I believe in and also this kind of cinema once in a while," he added.
