"I am very much fortunate to work with Mr. Bachchan. I have never even thought in my dream that he would wish to work with me. It's a good luck that I am getting to work with such a big actor in my next film," he said at an event where he was announced as a brand ambassador of a premium suiting brand Mayur Suiting.
As per the reports it was a request from Big B himself to director Sujoy Ghosh asking the filmmaker to cast him with Nawazuddin. Ghosh has finally scripted a tale that has both Amitabh and Nawazuddin in interesting roles. If reports are to be believed the film is titled "Kerala" and is a thriller set in the south Indian state.
This year, Nawazuddin was seen in "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Manjhi - The Mountain Man" and garnered praise for both. Currently he is shooting for "Raees" with Shahrukh Khan where he is playing a cop. Directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Gauri Khan, this film is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2016.
