When Anurag Kashyap's Phantom Productions and MSM Motion Pictures jointly announced their co-production, GHOOMKETU, starring actor par excellence, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, in a comic role, the news came as quite a surprise to many film buffs. And naturally so, as Nawaz has till now been associated with serious and intense kind of films and roles.
However, we were not surprised at all, in fact Nawaz accepting a comic role is a promise that he has fulfilled to us. Yes, for the information of our patrons when we met Nawaz we had told him that despite GANGS OF WASSEYPUR 2 being a serious, dark film, yet our favourite scene from the film was the part where Nawaz is asking Huma's 'permeeson' out for a date to watch a film starring Shahrukh, Salman. We also apprised him about his perfect straight innocent face comedy and Nawaz surprised us with his answer.
Said Nawaz, ''Thank you for the appreciation. Though it will surprise you but I have been doing comedy all my life and comedy comes naturally. In fact most of the roles that I have enacted during my theater days were mostly comic and I had got tired of doing comedy and wanted to do more serious stuff.'' But we coaxed him to look for scripts that offer him some scope for comedy and he said, ''Well, I promise I will try to do some comic films but only if I get a character to my liking.''
Well, we thank Nawaz for fulfilling his promise and we are indeed looking forward to GHOOMKETU were he reunites with his GANGS OF WASSEYPUR 2 co-star, Huma Qureshi.
