National Award-winning filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who is collaborating with Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui for the screen adaptation of the novel "Serious Men", says he was keen to work with the actor and was awaiting the right role to offer to him. On their collaboration, Mishra told IANS: "What can I say about Nawaz that has already not been said? He is a wonderful actor and I always wanted to work with him. But I had to offer him something interesting because good actors are always attracted to a good script. In Manu Joseph's 'Serious Men', I found one part for him."
"Serious Men" released in 2010. It is a story of class and gender conflict. Talking more about it, Mishra said: "It is a great story that revolves around the relationship of a father and son from the Dalit community. Though there is a lot of angst in him and most of his decisions are driven by anger... he is a father after all."
"So his character is not dark, rather grey. I try to show that softer side also. An angry man's life is not black and white. It is grey," added the filmmaker, who is known for films like "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi", "Chameli" and "Inkaar".
On the related note, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to be paired opposite Mouni Roy in a film titled Bole Chudiya. The film is going to be Nawaz's brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui's directorial debut. On Friday, Taran Adarsh shared the first look posters of the film which has Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mouni Roy in the leading roles. In the poster, Mouni is peeping from behind a door while Nawaz is standing non-chalantly leaning against a wall.
Sharing the poster, Taran Adarsh wrote, "Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mouni Roy in #BoleChudiyan... Marks the directorial debut of Shamas Nawab Siddiqui, brother of Nawazuddin Siddiqui... Produced by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Bhatia... Starts June 2019."
