Nawazuddin Siddiqui to play a comic role in his next

Bejoy Nambiar has roped in the Gangs of Wasseypur actor to play a not-so-serious role in his next venture

Nawazuddin Siddiqui started his career with a blink-and-miss role in Sarfarosh, but it was his impeccable performance in Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur which made him the darling of crossover cinema. And now the talented actor is all set to explore his comic side in Bejoy Nambiar’s next tentatively titled Focus. Bejoy, who loves dark genres, for a change will be making a drama film which will have a tinge of humour.

The movie will also star Arvind Swamy of Bombay and Roja fame and will be directed by debutant Akarsh Khurana. While Nawazuddin will play the lead role, the makers are yet to finalise the leading lady for the film which will go on floors next year.
