Actor Nikhil Dwivedi who won critical acclaim for his role in Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan starrer Raavan, will be seen in an all new avtaar soon.

Though the film turned out to be a box office disaster, the 30-year-old has landed the lead role in producer Suryaveer Singh’s upcoming venture titled, Tamanchey.

Interestingly Nikhil’s character is inspired from gangster Abu Salem’s (inset) life and various incidents in Salem’s life define the plot of the movie. The producer’s search for a suitable actor to play the role of Monica Bedi is still on.

“The story is based on similar incidences on the life of Abu and Monica.

Even though the film will be fictional, the incidents in it are inspired from reality. Extensive research has been done to make sure the story looks authentic and promising as well,” says a source.
