Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s talented director brother Shamas had made the short film Miyan Kal Aana a hit at several film festivals.
Now ready for his first full-length feature film Bole Chudiyan, Shamas is ready with his cast, featuring Sonakshi Sinha opposite his powerhouse brother.
The director had zeroed in on Shraddha Kapoor to be cast opposite his brother in his directorial debut. But with Shraddha being busy with Remo D’Souza’s Street Dancer, her dates became an issue this year.
Shraddha has also allocated bulk dates for Saaho opposite Prabhas and has to manage shooting her shuttling sequen ces for the Saina Nehwal biopic. She has also been signed for the third part of Baaghi opposite Tiger Shroff.
“She is extremely busy and Shamas wanted to go on the floors this year. Now Shamas has more or less convinced Sonakshi Sinha to play the lead in his film, which is set in Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. It is a romantic film and Sonakshi and Nawaz will be paired opposite each other in this slice of life romance,” says a source close to the development of the film that is being bankrolled by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Zaveri Bhatia.
