Nawazuddin Siddiqui to meet Phoolan Devi murder accused in Tihar Jail

The Talaash actor will play Sher Singh Rana, who allegedly killed Phoolan Devi, in the biopic End of Bandit Queen

Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is gearing up to work on a second biopic – End of Bandit Queen – based on the life of Sher Singh Rana, prime accused in the murder of bandit-turned-politician Phoolan Devi in 2001. “I will start shooting for this biopic film in March 2013. It is a biopic on Sher Singh Rana. The film is tentatively titled End of Bandit Queen. We will be shooting in India, Bangladesh and Afghanistan,” said Nawazuddin.

Sher Singh Rana is currently lodged at Delhi’s Tihar Jail, and Nawazuddin says he will meet him soon. “I will be meeting Rana who is in Tihar Jail right now. Then I will get a clear picture about my character. So this is the only research that I will have to do to fit the bill,” said the actor, who has received critical acclaim for his work in movies like Kahaani and Gangs of Wasseypur.

End of Bandit Queen will be directed by the theatre director Barry John.

Nawazuddin recently shot for a biopic Mountain Man, on the life of Dashrath Manjhi, a Bihar-based labourer, who made a 360-foot-long road by physically cutting down a mountain.
