The script is an experimental one and I am sure Jaideep Chopra will do full justice to it and together we will be able to discover something novel.”
Elnaaz Norouzi states, “I am so honoured and thrilled to work with Nawazuddin Sir once again. Sangeen is an incredible script, a role I’ve always secretly dreamt of essaying as an actor. I am looking forward to bringing that complex character to life with Jaideep Sir who has written it so skilfully.”
Jaideep Chopra states, “Very excited to be working for the very first time with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He is an actor par excellence and I couldn’t think of any one more deserving than him to bring a sense of authenticity to my film.
