“Both Ahmed and Rajat had a lot of zeal and enthusiasm while narrating ‘Laila’ to me, which was impressive!” says Nawazuddin Siddiqui on his role ‘Laila’ in Heropanti 2
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is undoubtedly one of the most talented stars of Bollywood. The actor will soon be seen playing ‘Laila’ in the Eid release Heropanti 2 that hits on 29th April. About playing an antagonist character in the upcoming release that also stars Tiger Shroff and Tara Sutaria, the actor recalled, “I was in London shooting for some other film when this role was offered to me by Ahmed and Rajat. They narrated the character to me while we were traveling to a certain location in the countryside and then later we took the narration to the hotel. Both Ahmed and Rajat had a lot of zeal and enthusiasm while narrating ‘Laila’ to me, which was impressive!”
He added, “However, Heropanti 2 is a commercial film but today, the authenticity, the background, the reasons, and the logic of the character matter more than anything. I did realize that even the content-driven movies don’t have as much information as Ahmed and Rajat had for this character.”
Heropanti 2 is one of the most anticipated action films of the year which is directed by Ahmed Khan and is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
Besides the action thriller, Nawaz has an interesting lineup of films ahead including Tiku Weds Sheru, Noorani Chehra, and Adbhut, among others.
