Says a source close to the project, "Aziz has been signed on to play a high profile diplomat from Pakistan, a key character in the film. He will be seen wooing Rekha."
The singer is said to have started shooting already. Adds the source, "He has been given an authentic and interesting look for the role. He has shot a few scenes with Rekha and their chemistry is quite good. As of now, we won't be able to reveal whether his character is inspired by an actual person. But, it is definitely going to be appealing."
