Nawazuddin Siddiqui after giving his impressive performance in Netflix original webseries : The Sacred Games, is coming with yet another thriller. Nawazuddin will play the role of Indo-Pakistani, Urdu author and writer Saadat Hasan Manto in biographical drama film Manto.
Manto, written and directed by Nandita Das, stars Rasika Dugal, Tahir Raj Bhasin and also Nawazuddin Siddqui in the lead. Manto will release in the last week of december and will clash with 3 Mega Movies. Here are the 3 movies which will clash with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Manto.
1. Simmba : Ranveer’s latest movie Simmba directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. It stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles. The film is a remake of 2015 Telugu blockbuster film Temper, is in talks and will release on 28th december. Simmba will surely affect the box office collection of Manto because of Ranveer’s stardom and Rohit Shetty’s hit factor.
2. Zero : Zero is an upcoming Indian romantic drama film written by Himanshu Sharma and directed by Aanand L. Rai. It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The plot follows Khan playing a guy of short stature, who falls in love with a superstar played by Katrina Kaif. Shah Rukh Khan’s stardom and Salman Khan’s guest appearance has already set screens on fire. Shah Rukh Khan and his movies are always loved by Indian audience because of his unique style and acting. It would be really hard for Manto to perform economically well in front of Zero.
3. The Accidental Prime Minister : The Accidental Prime Minister is an upcoming 2018 Indian film directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and written by Mayank Tewari. It stars Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh, former Prime minister of India during 2004 to 2014. Akshaye Khanna will play Political.
