The Dangal sisters Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh are on a roll lately with the younger Sanya becoming a part of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s next film taking over the role of the lead actor.
On one side, Fatima Sana Shaikh has a big film lined up ahead in the form of Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan where she will act alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. Now, Sanya Malhotra is going to feature in a Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer. Ritesh Batra is going to direct the movie. The director previously directed a film like ‘Lunchbox’.
Talking about his next project starring Nawaz and Sanya, he said:
“Set in Mumbai, it’s a love story of sorts between a poor photographer and his muse. There are a lot of other actors too in the film. It’ll have an ensemble cast since there are 44 parts in it. There will be a lot of exciting actors but Nawaz and Sanya are the two leads.”
Following these statements, the actor praised Nawazuddin Siddiqui by saying:
“Nawaz is someone I worked with before, and I wanted to work with him again. So, he has always been attached to the project since I wrote the first draft. As for the girl’s part, we auditioned a lot of people, and that’s how Sanya was selected, through an intense process of auditioning.”
He further added:
“I would like to work in different kinds of films, play different types of characters, and explore every bit of it. Any genre is good, as long as I have not tried it before. But romancing on screen, I feel, would be challenging for me as I am not so romantic in (real) life.”
Any further details regarding the film are still unknown. Also, the release date of the movie is still unknown.
