Raat Akeli Hai marks the directorial debut of Honey Trehan. The film is a crime thriller set in rural India starring Radhika Apte, Shweta Tripaathi and Nawazuddin in lead roles. This is the second time Shweta has been paired with Nawazuddin after Haraamkhor that won both of them much acclaim.

Meanwhile, Nawazuddin’s film Photograph, which also stars Sanya Malhotra, is all set to be screened at the 19th New York Indian Film Festival. The festival commences on May 7 and will run up to May 12 at the Village East Cinemas, Manhattan.

Ahead of the Photograph’s release the actor had shared his experience during his struggling days in Mumbai. He has revealed that he did several odd jobs, which included selling coriander and working as a watchman, to the Facebook page, Humans of Bombay.

“Financially, I wasn’t well off. I would borrow money from my friends, saying I’d return them in 2 days. Two days later I would borrow money from someone else and pay the first person back. I lived in a flat with four other people – it was about survival. I worked odd jobs – sometimes as a watchman, sometimes selling coriander. I even held acting workshops! I must have gone for a 100 auditions and took up every single role that came my way, no matter how small it was. It took 12 years before I got a ‘breakthrough’. It wasn’t easy – the struggle was not beautiful, it was just that; a struggle,” Nawazuddin said.
