Nawazuddin has won applauds for his powerful performance in his recently released movie, and now the Badlapur villain is making rounds on the internet.
The biopic of the iconic author Saadat Hasan Manto is a project being helmed by critically acclaimed actress Nandita Das. But finally, it seems to be in the making with actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rasika Dugal as the main leads.
Nawazuddin shared the first look of the movie on Twitter. Looking at the picture, one sees that the actor bears a striking resemblance to the late writer.

In an interview, Nawaz was quoted saying; ” I have been reading up a lot on Manto and know a few of his writings by rote now. The role spans from 25 to 35 and my office is full of clothes and shoes replicated from his time. We won’t be using prosthetics and would like to keep the look as natural as possible as Manto was a simple man. I will imbibe the way he spoke but since there aren’t any videos available, I will have to depend on his writings to understand the rhythm of his speech and the way he would use words, beautifully.”
