Nawazuddin Siddiqui to step into Farhan Akhtar’s shoes?

As per the latest buzz, Nawaz will replace Farhan in Rahul Dholakia’s Raees co-starring SRK and Sonam

Not too long ago, Farhan Akhtar opted out from Rahul Dholakia’s directorial venture Raees due to date issues. Though the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag actor was looking forward to the film, sadly he had to back off. Now we hear Nawazuddin Siddiqui will star in the film instead alongside Shahrukh Khan and Sonam Kapoor. Reportedly, the Gangs of Wasseypur actor is already in talks with the production company Excel Entertainment. There has been no official announcement regarding the same but we hope things fall into place for Nawaz. After all, The Lunchbox actor is supremely talented, hai na? And also it would interest to see him share screen space with King Khan.

Wethinks Nawazuddin would indeed seal the deal as it’s a character driven role. In fact, that’s why Akhtar also agreed to do the film in the first place. While talking to a tabloid, a source said, “That’s the reason Farhan was drawn to it as soon as he heard the script. But with Shahrukh’s injuries the shoot of Raees got pushed forward. Zoya’s (Akhtar) Dil Dhadakne Do also got delayed and eventually Farhan’s dates for Raees were clashing with those that he had allotted to Bijoy Nambiar’s film for Vinod Chopra. Farhan eventually realised that he would have to let this film go as he didn’t want to delay the project any further. If all goes well, Raees should now roll post monsoon.”
