Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui might not always have had the chance to play a hero, but in his brother Shamas Siddiqui's upcoming film, Bole Chudiyan, the actor will get to live the part. The film has signed on Kabir Singh Duhan to play the villain to Siddiqui's romantic lead in the film. Duhan is reportedly playing the brother of Tamannaah Bhatia's character.
Mumbai Mirror, a tabloid, quoted Shamas Siddiqui as saying, "Kabir plays Mansoor, Tamannaah's brother. It is a very important role. and I had spoken to a lot of actors, many of them from the Hindi film industry, but I was most impressed by Kabir."
Duhan has acted in several Telugu films like Ravi Teja's Kick 2 (2015), Ajith-starrer Vedalam (2015) and Lawrence Raghavendra's Kanchana 2 (2015). The actor has begun prepping for the shoot that is scheduled to start on 13 July.
The report also quoted Shamas as saying, "In the film, Kabir hails from a zamindar family, while Nawaz's character is a middle-class man and the two never get along."
The crew will begin shooting in Mandawa, with Firozabad and Delhi also on the schedule.
