We begin our start to finish schedule with all of them, from the end of this month, and go on right until the middle of April. It’s exciting to work with Nawaz once again and create something diametrically opposite of what we did last time.”

Nandy further added, “This is a special film for Nawaz and me because the wait owing to Covid lockdown seemed endless. I am so glad that finally we are going to be on the sets and begin shooting. I am looking forward to working with Neha and exploring her inherent goofiness and fun vibe.”
Nawaz was last seen in “Raat Akeli Hai” and “Serious Men”. Besides Sangeen and Jogira Sara Ra Ra! Nawaz has many upcoming projects. He will be seen in Mostofa Sarwar Farooki’s No Land’s Man and Sejal Shah’s untitled next.
