Just a couple of days back we had talked about the striking resemblance between renowned writer Saadat Hassan Manto and actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The actor is portraying the literary giant, who is even compared to iconic English author DH Lawrence, and has penned classics like Toba Tek Singh (which highlight and ridicules the partition of undivided India),  in the upcoming biopic, MANTO.


To know more about MANTO, we caught up with Nawaz, who told us, ”Tentatively we will shoot for MANTO from mid-February, and the film is likely to be completed in about 15-20 days.”

When we queried Nawazuddin about how well he understood Saadat Hassan Manto, he said, ”I read a lot about him and his works during my NSD days. Additionally, director Nandita Das has been researching about him for the last 6 years, and so it is but obvious that the script has to be superb”, concludes the master actor.
