Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays the central part in the second installment of Anurag Kashyap's Gangs Of Wasseypur (GOW), seems to have found a match. The actor and Huma Qureshi, who plays his love interest in the movie, are going on a date.On Monday, the couple will watch Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ, 1995). The film is still running in the 11.30 am show at a city theatre. A source reveals that Nawaz and Huma used to chat a lot about romantic dialogue from different Hindi films, which is why one of their common friends suggested they watch DDLJ together.
"Neither of them knew that it was still running at Maratha Mandir (Mumbai Central). They had seen it a number of times on TV, but decided to see it once more on the big screen," says the source.
The actors were unavailable for comments, but Anurag confirmed the news saying, "They are big film buffs. They will be going on a movie date as they both love DDLJ."
Based on the underworld coal mafia in and around Dhanbad, Gangs Of Wasseypur 1 was set in the '60s and '70s, while the second part is in the year 2000. Nawaz's character, Faisal Khan, is based on the original coal mafia leader Faheem Khan, who is presently serving a life sentence. The film releases on August 8.
