NAWAZUDDIN STARTS SHOOTING FOR HADDI
In an exclusive conversation with an entertainment portal, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “It’s just been a couple of days. We have started the shoot of Haddi I will be portraying two roles in the film — I play a woman and a transgender. These are two separate parts, it’s a double role. Akshat had this script and wanted to make the film for almost four years. Akshat has worked as a second unit director in AK VS AK and Sacred Games. I have known him since the time he has worked with Anurag Kashyap. Now we are finally making this venture possible.”

He further added, “If I am playing a female character, I need to think like a woman and that’s my test as an actor.”

It’s absolutely justified. Outfit, hair, make-up, yeh sab toh theek hai… that’s not my concern. There are experts to look into it and they know their job.”
