After impressive performances in films like Kick, Manjhi and Raman Raghav 2.0, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set for his next project - Munna Michael.
Directed by Sabbir Khan, Nawazuddin will be seen in a totally new avatar in Munna Michael: sporting front curls, boots, bling earrings, sunglasses and a leather jacket, he even shakes his leg in the film. Tiger Shroff, who plays a die-hard Michael Jackson fan in the film is in the lead.
Sabbir shared Nawaz’s first look from the film on Friday.
Talking about Nawaz’s role, Sabbir said, “ While writing Nawazudin’s character I knew exactly how i wanted him to look, how he would walk, talk. Once we started workshops on the script and Nawaz had got into the skin of the character, i explained how I wanted him to look and expected him to raise a few questions but there were none. He surrendered completely and went through everything patiently.”
“There’s a lot of romance, apart from the dancing, in this film. I want to play a romantic hero,“ Nawaz said.
Produced by Viki Rajani, the film traces the journey of Munna, a street kid who dreams of becoming the King of Pop -Michael Jackson. Debutante actress Nidhhi Agerwal is the leading lady and Nawaz plays a quirky character with many shades. Newbie Nidhhi Agerwal will making her Bollywood debut with the film.
“Sabbir makes commercial films but he’s focussed on detailing, doesn’t overdo things on the set and wants the film to look realistic. I like it when directors don’t play to the galleries,“ Nawaz added.
The shoot of the movie is currently going on in Mumbai. It is scheduled to release next year.
