In January, Nawazuddin Siddiqui made his comeback with Jaideep Chopra’s Sangeen, a two-handed thriller set mostly in one room. The actor followed up the thriller with Kangana Ranaut’s Tiku Weds Sheru, which began filming just a few months ago.
Now we have learnt that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is working on a comedy film with Sabbir Khan, the director of Munna Michael. Adbhut is the title of the project, and it will see Siddiqui delve into the world of stand-up comedy. The director of Heropanti and Baaghi wrote the script himself and will produce it in collaboration with a major studio.
Although the project’s details are being kept under wraps for the time being, we’ve heard it’s a lighthearted dramedy set in India’s heartland that will keep you entertained until the very last frame with its unusual narrative. Sabbir Khan has already began pre-production, with actual shoot set to begin in October.
Apart from Sangeen, Tiku Weds Sheru, and Adbhut, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has also signed a real-life-based drama for his Serious Men producers Sejal Shah and Bhavesh Mandalia. The yet-untitled project will see him playing the role of a customs officer who fearlessly worked to fix the flaws in the system.
