Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the role of a villain in Anil Sharma’s next movie ‘Genius’.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who gained popularity by playing the grey character in “Gang of Wasseypur”, “Kick”, “Jagga Jasoos”, “Badlapur” and many more, is set yet again to play a negative role for the movie “Genius”. Directed by Anil Sharma, the film will also see the launch of his son, Utkarsh Sharma.
However the director/father said that, “Everyone must be thinking that Utkarsh is my son, so I must have treated him gently on the film sets, but that’s not the case. I am a taskmaster as a director. I worked with him in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha as well. When I work as a director, then I only act as a director. That time I only see actors like characters for my film. While shooting for Gadar…, I made Utkarsh shoot in really tough conditions and late nights as well, so in this film also I have treated him only as an actor who plays the character in my film, and not as a son.”
The film will see a new leading lady: Ishitha Chauhan. Anil hosted a wrap-up party of the movie with other cast members Mithun Chakraborty, Ayesha Jhulka and as well as Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Aruna Irani and more.
