Nawazuddin Siddiqui is perhaps looking for a change of image. Tired of playing sleazy seedy sociopaths Nawaz wants to play a romantic hero. And he has brother Shamas Siddiqui to boost the actor ’s romantic yearnings. The brothers planned a film entitled Bole Choodiyan which will have Nawaz as a soft romantic singing love ballads to his beloved.
Sadly, no major heroine was willing to hop on the love express with Nawaz.The brothers have finally settled for Mouni Roy who will be seen in Brahmastra directed by Ayan Mukerji.
Apparently, Mouni asked for a hefty remuneration, far higher than what she normally gets, to let Nawaz romance her. “Mouni was most reluctant especially when she heard of the long list of leading ladies who had rejected the role. Then she relented. But only on condition that she gets paid a certain amount,” says a source.
The Siddiqui brothers were allegedly not very happy with what Mouni demanded. But they had no choice but to bear with her demands. Love comes at a price!
