Bollywood star Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to star opposite Italian actor Valentina Corti in Tannishtha Chatterjee’s directorial debut.
The Manjhi star had everyone wondering after posting a picture with the Italian star on social media. He also added an intriguing caption to the image, “Ye ladki mere Rome Rome me hai.”
Later, film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news of the stars sharing screen space in a film. He wrote, “Italian actor Valentina Corti joins the cast of Tannishtha Chatterjee’s directorial debut alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui… Produced by Eros International, Rising Star Entertainment, Ravi Walia and Pankaj Razdan… Currently being filmed in Rome.”
The actor-turned-director is best known for her performance in British film Brick Lane. The drama was an adaptation of Monica Ali’s best-selling novel of the same name.
On the other hand, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is currently working on a couple of projects such as Genius and Manto.
Meanwhile, Nawazuddin recently landed in a soup for his Netflix drama series Sacred Games, which also stars Saif Ali Khan and Radhika Apte. A complaint was filed against the actor for misrepresenting and maligning former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s name.
