Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Ghoomketu to release on ZEE5
The comedy-drama follows an inexperienced writer struggling to make it big in the film industry
ZEE5 is set to release Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Ghoomketu on May 22. Directed by Pushpendra Nath Mishra, the film is a comedy-drama about an inexperienced writer struggling to make it big in the film industry. On his quest to come up with a great story, he is inspired by day-to-day activities and is hounded by a corrupt cop played by Anurag Kashyap.
Ghoomketu is produced by the now-defunct Phantom Films and Sony Pictures Networks (SPN). The film features cameos by Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Chitrangada Singh, Lauren Gottlieb and Nikhil Advani. Raghubir Yadav, Swanand Kirkire and Ragini Khanna are part of the main cast.
Nawazuddin shares, “Ghoomketu is a quirky, never-seen-before character and I thoroughly enjoyed playing him. Anurag, who is generally behind the camera, will be seen sharing screen space with us and it was a great experience to work with him. Ghoomketu has a phenomenal storyline which will definitely entertain the audience. During this time of the lockdown, I am glad that a humorous film that the entire family can watch is being streamed on ZEE5.”
Anurag adds, “Every film is a labour of love and I saw the conviction in the director of Ghoomketu and hence decided to do something which is my least favourite thing to do, which is act. The film is funny and heartwarming.”
