Nawaz in Buddhadeb's next!



New Delhi, June 19 -- Actor Nawazuddin Siddique who has won a Special Jury Award in the National Awards this year, has worked with National Award winning director Buddhadeb Dasgupta, in his next.

Titled Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa, the film will se Nawaz playing a detective. "But the film is not a detective film," clarifies Dasgupta, who, despite having done short films in Hindi, has never attempted a commercial Hindi film before this.

Asked why he chose Nawaz for the role, the veteran filmmaker says, "Because I wanted to cast an ordinary looking man." The film, which is now under post-production in Mumbai, is expected to be screened at the Venice Film Festival in August. Dasgupta has already won an award at the festival for his film Uttara in the year 2000.
