Nawazuddin Siddiqui was right for `Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa`: Director
Mumbai: National award-winning director Buddhadeb Dasgupta says he was impressed with actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui`s talent after watching films like ‘Kahaani’ and ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’, and he felt he would fit the bill for the lead role in ‘Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa’.
"I was not finding a right face for (the role of) Anwar. I waited for the right face to play Anwar. When I saw Nawaz, I signed him. I feel Nawaz is the most talented actor in the Hindi film industry. He is a wonderful actor," Dasgupta said in a statement.
The story of ‘Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa’ was ready around two years back, but the director was ready to wait until he zeroed in on the perfect face to essay a common man`s role.
The film is produced by Leo Eight Pixmedia Pvt. Ltd. and is currently under post production.
