Nawazuddin Siddiqui doesn’t believe in sticking to the stereotypes – he does one masala film with Salman Khan and follows it up with Anurag Kashyap’s noir thriller. Take a deep, hard look at him as real-life serial killer Raman Raghav in Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming film, Raman Raghav 2.0. This is the stuff nightmares are made of.
The filmmaker released the first look of the film on Sunday which literally shows blood flowing on Mumbai’s streets and followed it up with Nawaz’s look. With bloodshot red eyes and bloodied lug wrenches sticking out of his head, he looks every bit the psychopathic killer he is supposed to be portraying.

Vicky Kaushal of Masaan fame plays a cop in the film.
The film is based on notorious serial killer Raman Raghav, who went on murder spree in Mumbai in the 1960s. After he was arrested, Raghav admitted that he had killed 23 people in 1966 and a dozen in 1968. Police believes the number could be higher.
The movie will premiere at the 69th Cannes International Film Festival. Earlier Nawaz and Anurag’s Gangs of Wasseypur opened at the prestigious film festival.
