Nawazuddin`s brother to direct commercial film

Mumbai: Nawazuddin Siddiqui says his brother Shammas Siddiqui is set to make his debut in filmdom as a director with a crime-based saga and adds that it will be in the commercial zone.

"Unlike me, he believes in commercial dramas. His film will release on a commercial level. We are extremely different when it comes to films. I don`t believe in any formula. I believe only in strong scripts," Nawazuddin said.

"My brother had earlier directed TV series `Crime Patrol`, so he has a fair idea about crime-based subjects. He wants to explore the crime genre in the commercial zone," he added.

The actor of films like ‘Miss Lovely’ and ‘Kahaani’ says that his brother`s film will go on the floors by year end.

"He is writing two scripts and the initial draft isn`t ready, so the film will take some time. The film will go on the floors by the end of the year. His first film will be a crime-based film based in western Uttar Pradesh."

When asked whether he will feature in his brother`s directorial debut, Nawaz said: "I don`t know whether he will approach me for his film. Let`s see how things fall in place."
