Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte- whenever these two names come up anybody can get chills because they have given such powerful performances in the Hindi film industry as well as on the digital platform's web series. Nawaz and Radhika both have worked together in many projects like 2015's thriller Badlapur by Sriram Raghavan and Manjhi - The Mountain Man, the duo is all set to entertain the audience as they are once again cast together for casting director turned filmmaker- Honey Trehan's next project titled 'Raat Akeli Hai'. And we are already excited to see them on-screen which means double-triple the entertainment factor wrapped in one movie.
Nawaz who was last seen in Nandita Das's Saadat Hasan Manto will also soon be seen in playing Bal Thackeray in Abhijit Panse’s biopic on the Shiv Sena supremo.
Talking about 'Raat Akeli Hai,' a source informs the daily, "It’s a love story set in the heartland of India. Honey was on the lookout for his leading lady for a while now and thought Radhika fit the part to the T. Radhika and Honey have known each other for many years, while Nawaz and Radhika get along well, too. She loved the script and instantly gave her nod to the project. The team is set to start shooting in January".
Director Honey Trehan, who has assisted Vishal Bhardwaj in movies like Maqbool, Omkara, and 7 Khoon Maaf, has already started working on the pre-production of this project. It is also said that Trehan was supposed to debut with the leads like Deepika Padukone and Irfan Khan in Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. Later with the mutual understanding of Trehan and Vishal Bhardwaj, they sum up that Vishal will work on this project. In a statement, the soon to debut director, Trehan said, "Owing to differences in creative understanding, we have mutually and amicably decided that it would be best for our film if Vishal sir took over as director."
