Nawazuddin Siddiqui's next Bole Chudiyan
The romantic drama film will be directed by his brother, Shamas Nawab Siddiqui
Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be playing the role of a ‘passionate lover’ in his brother, Shamas Nawab Siddiqui’s debut feature film, Bole Chudiyan.
The romantic drama film will be produced by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Bhatia of Woodpecker Movies, who are also bankrolling Nawazuddin’s upcoming release, Motichoor Chaknachoor. Shamas Siddiqui has previously helmed several ad films and a short, Miyan Kal Aana (Mister Come Tomorrow), that has travelled to 34 international film festivals and received 10 awards. He has also worked as a co-producer in Manto, where Nawazuddin played the titular role of Saadat Hasan Manto.
"I am happy that Nawaz bhai has given his nod to my script. I have worked for more than a year on the script. As everyone knows, he is very choosy with his scripts and wouldn't do a film just because I am his brother. Bole Chudiyan is a romantic drama set in our home-town of Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. We are in talks with several actors to play the female lead in the film. An announcement will be made in two-three days," Shamas told us.
Producer Rajesh Bhatia confirmed the development saying, “Bole Chudiyan will be shot in a single schedule of 45 days. The shooting of the film will begin on May 1 and it will be wrapped up by June 20. The film is expected to be released in October.”
