Everybody is going ga ga over a recent photo with a mystery girl that Nawazudin Siddiqui has posted on Instagram with a cryptic cation last Wednesday. The whole social media circle went bonkers labelling her as Nawaz's latest girlfriend.
In his instagram, Nawazuddin wrote, "Yeh Ladki mere ‘rome rome mein’ hai’’ and had everyone wondering who she was.
However now we know that she’s Italian actress Valentina Corti who has been roped in opposite the 44-year-old actor for Tannishtha Chatterjee’s yet untitled directorial debut which is presently being shot in Rome.
Pune Mirror reports that Valentina is known for her TV shows, Don Matteo, All the Music of the Heart and Titanic: Blood and Steel. The latter also featured Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham and Frozen actor Kevin Zegers. “I knew she was the one the first time I met her. Valentina is very beautiful, a great actress and well-known in Italy. I did a few days of workshop with both of them before we started shooting and they get along really well, joking and pranking each other. She is a fun person,” said Tannishtha, speaking to Pune Mirror.
The actress-turned-director is reuniting with Nawazuddin after Mangesh Hadawale’s 2011 drama Dekh Indian Circus and Garth Davis’s 2017 Dev Patel-Nicole Kidman-starrer Lion. She was his junior at the National School of Drama and has known the actor for over 14 years. As part of prep and a bonding exercise, Tannishtha even sent her lead pair on a dinner date so they could get to know each other better, the report further says.
