Nawazuddin Siddiqui to Do Another Web Series After Sacred Games. Here are the Details
Sudhir Mishra will be teaming up with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for the first time for this exciting project
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has signed on his next film. The versatile actor will play the lead in the screen adaption of journalist-author Manu Joseph’s acclaimed 2010 novel, Serious Man. The screen version of the complex novel will be a web-series directed by Sudhir Mishra who has earlier directed brilliant films like Hazaron Khwaishein Aisi and Iss Raat Ki Subah Nahi.
The plot revolves around the adventures of a Dalit man from the lower echelons of the social hierarchy in Mumbai who hobnobs with and works for a brilliant astronomer. It is an ambitious saga about overweening ambition and aspiration.
According to sources, Sudhir Mishra had purchased the rights of the book two years ago but waited for the right actor and producer. With Nawazuddin on board the project gets the protagonist that it deserves. The Birla Group’s Applause Entertainment is helmed by media baron Samir Nair and has recently scored a huge success with the web series Criminal Justice. Nair will produce Serious Man.
Nawazuddin is still riding high on the success of his last web series Sacred Games, also featuring Saif Ali Khan, which airs on Netflix . His character, a criminal called Gaitonde, has been one of his most memorable roles so far.
