Today, when biopics are the rage in Bollywood it only makes sense if more such films are made. Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to don the producer’s hat for a biopic film.
Nawazuddin who has produced brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui’s short film Miyaan Kal Aana is back with yet another content-driven venture based on the life of folk artiste Teejan Bai.
Nawazuddin has been a huge admirer of Teejan Bai since his theatre days and was privileged to perform her live. The veteran artiste performs Pandvani, a traditional performing art form involving narration of tales from the Mahabharata. The initial idea of making a film on her was of Nawazuddin’s wife Anjali.
Siddiqui is one of the producers in Magic If Films with his wife Anjali and brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui. The biopic will be jointly produced by them.
On the work front, Nawazuddin is busy with the release of his next Motichoor Chaknachoor opposite Athiya Shetty and Photograph alongside Sanya Malhotra. The actor-producer is also wrapping up the shoot of Sacred Games 2 and Raat Akeli Hai with Radhika Apte. He will begin shooting for Shamas Nawab Siddiqui’s feature Bole Chudiyan soon.
2019 seems like a busy year.
