After receiving praises for his portrayal of Dashrath Manjhi in Ketan Mehta's 'Manjhi: The Mountain Man', Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set for yet another challenging role. Buzz is that the actor has been roped in to play a psychopathic serial killer in Anurag Kashyap's next.
The film is reportedly based on Raman Raghav, a psychopathic serial killer in the mid-1960’s who operated from Mumbai. Now we hear that Nawaz will shave off his head to play this dreaded character.
A Hindustan Times quoted a source as saying, "Anurag and Nawaz have been talking about this movie for a long time. They mutually decided on Nawaz’s look for the film, and came up with the idea that he should shave his head. The shooting will start this week. In the meantime, Nawaz will try to complete all his pending shoots. The character will be styled similar to Aamir Khan’s in ‘Ghajini’ (2008).”
The film will be written by Sriram Raghavan who last directed the critically acclaimed 'Badlapur'.
