Nawazuddin Siddiqui to play undercover agent

After the Saif Ali Khan-Ileana D’Cruz starrer ‘Happy Ending’, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K will now shift their attention towards the con thriller ‘Farzi’ which has Shahid Kapoor in the lead. Now we hear that the film will also have Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a prominent role.

The actor, who played the role of a hard headed cop in the Vidya Balan starrer ‘Kahaani’, will now play a character which is something in the lines of an undercover agent in Farzi. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who started off with minuscule yet impactful roles in films like ‘Talaash’, shot to fame with ‘Gangs of Wasseypur II’ and he was recently seen chasing Salman Khan in the Sajid Nadiadwala directorial debut ‘Kick’.

We hear that ‘Farzi’ will see Shahid Kapoor playing an intelligent con artist who conspires a huge financial theft and the government in a bid to find him, hire the no nonsense guy played by Nawazuddin and then begins the cat and mouse game. The film will be shot in varied locations from Mumbai to Delhi to Hyderabad.

Produced by Eros, ‘Farzi’ is also said to star Kriti Sanon and the film is slated to go on floors in November.

Kriti Sanon, who made her debut opposite Tiger Shroff in ‘Heropanti’, will also be seen with Akshay Kumar in Prabhu Dheva’s next ‘Singh is Bling’. On the other hand, Shahid Kapoor who is busy with the release of ‘Haider’, will wrap up his next film ‘Shandaar’ alongside Alia Bhatt, directed by Vikas Bahl.
