Nawazuddin Siddiqui – A Portrait of a Killer Actor

Movie Trailer Cast & Crew Information Asia Release Date Plot Summary

Some actors just cannot be denied their moment in the spotlight. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s meteoric rise to prominence as a character actor is one such story.

While many first sat up and took notice of the natural actor after his stellar performance in 2012 Vidya Balan vehicle “Kahani” I admit to being late to the party. The sprawling crime saga “Gangs of Wasseypur” was our introduction. Playing a wanna be lothario and gangster he easily endeared himself to audiences. Following a succession of well received roles there was no stopping the actor from making his mark on Bollywood.

Teaming up again with his “Wasseypur” director Anurag Kashyap, Siddiqui looks set to deliver another unforgettable performance in “Raman Raghav 2.0”. Loosely inspired by Mumbai’s notorious series killer of the same name Siddiqui plays the sinister psychopath being chased by an equally unstable cop played by Vicky Kaushal.

Before it hits the screens in India it will play at the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight on the 16 May 2016. Anurag Kashyap’s “Raman Raghav 2.0” will be released in India on the 24th of June 2016. A release date for “Raman Raghav 2.0” in Malaysia and Singapore is not available at time of publishing.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui will also be seen collaborating with his “Kahani” co-star Vidya Balan and another Bollywood powerhouse whose talent could not be denied Amitabh Bachchan in “TE3N”. This time playing an ex-cop turned priest tracking down a psychopath. Talk about range!
