Nawazuddin Siddiqui confirms he is playing the lead in Ritesh Batra’s next



After the highly-acclaimed The Lunchbox Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to team up with director Ritesh Batra again.

“That’s right. I am doing Ritesh Batra’s next. It’s an intense subject and totally different from The Lunchbox and yes, unlike The Lunchbox where I wasn’t really the central character, this time I play the lead,” says Nawaz who makes his Hollywood debut later this month in the much talked-about Lion.

“It isn’t really a Hollywood debut. It’s just a cameo. I am there in only one scene. I did it because the director Garth Davis personally asked me,” reveals Nawaz. “I am as happy with my lead in Haraamkhor and Ritesh Batra’s film as I am with my cameo in Lion.”
