The National award winning filmmaker, known on the festival circuit, has apparently been pretty impressed by Nawaz’s histrionics. He decided to make a film with him in Hindi though originally he had planned to make the same project in Bengali.

Says Nawaz, “Yes. I have signed the film and will start shooting in March. It will be shot in Kolkata.”

The film has him essay a simple middle-class man who also doubles as a detective.

Adds Nawaz, “I shot for Kahaani in Kolkata and for this project I will be again in the City of Joy. I am looking forward to it.”

Dasgupta’s who has made Hindi films like Andhi Gali in 1984 with Deepti Naval and the children’s film Woh is best known for the much-celebrated and National award winner Bagh Bahadur with Pavan Malhotra.
