Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is gearing up for his upcoming movie Heropanti 2, which will be released on April 29, will play a never-before-seen villain named Laila opposite Tiger Shroff. The actor, who recently concluded two romances, Jogira Sa Ra Ra with Neha Sharma and Noorani Chehra with Nupur Sanon, will also be seen in a different role in supernatural thriller Adbhut.
Nawazuddin previously collaborated with Sabbir Khan for the 2017 action-dance film Munna Michael. Speak exclusively to The free press newspaper about his role in Adbhut, Nawazuddin shares, “It’s a very different genre. I have never explored the area of supernatural thrillers. However, Aatma was a pure horror movie. My director Sabbir is working on the character in great detail. None of my upcoming movies have that kind of detail in my character.
Nawazuddin gives more details about his role. “He’s an emotionless, dry character. It’s a big challenge to play such a role. I don’t think that kind of character has evolved yet in Bollywood, there’s no drama, but the movie has drama. Sometimes you’ll even get bored of seeing my character in the movie, but you’ll like it in the end,” he concludes.
Apart from Nawazuddin, Adbhut also includes Diana Penty, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Rohan Mehra. The film is backed and distributed by Sony Pictures Films India and is set to release in 2022.
