Nawazuddin Siddiui is known for his hard work and his down to earth nature. But this time he really went an extra mile to complete his movie and also satisfy his director. Nawazuddin was shooting for Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa in Maoist-infested area of Shimultala in Bihar and the beautiful hill resort is very well known for its Maoist activities.
But Nawazuddin and his unit braved the dangers as the film demanded the location and were shooting in the area until they had hastily leave Shimultala to avoid a confrontation with the Maoists and then completed the rest of the shooting in Kolkata.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui says, “We had to wrap up for our shooting on Friday and quickly leave as there was a bandh call from the Maoists on Saturday. No one in the area dares to defy closure orders from the Maoists. We had no option but to pack our bags and leave.”
Speaking about Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s film that he is currently working on, Nawazuddin says, “I wanted to work with Buddadeb Dasgupta from the time I saw his film Tahader Katha. It was visually stunning. And also, this brilliant director returns to Hindi cinema for the first time since he made Andhi Gali.”
