Nawazuddin Siddiqui will play the lead role in Sudhir Mishra’s upcoming Netflix original film, Serious Men. Based on journalist Manu Joseph’s eponymous book, the film follows a Mumbai slum dweller who convinces the world that his 10-year-old son is a genius. This is Nawazuddin’s second collaboration with Netflix after Sacred Games.
“I am very excited to be a part of Serious Men and work with a creative mind like Sudhir Mishra. This is my second stint with Netflix and I hope that people give Ayyan Mani the same love that they extended to Ganesh Gaitonde (his character in Sacred Games),” Nawaz said.
Sudhir is known for directing the critically-acclaimed films, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and Inkaar. His last directorial outing was Daas Dev.
Meanwhile, Sacred Games 2 is in the post-production stages and will be available for streaming soon. Nawazuddini's upcoming projects include Bole Chudiyan, Motichoor Chaknachoor, Dusty to meet Rusty and No Man's Land.
