Nawazuddin Siddiqui has opted out of Sanjay Sharma's upcoming film after shooting for it for a few days. The Kahaani and Gangs of Wasseypur actor was to play a RAW agent in the film.
As his character required him to be in suits, he was looking forward to essay a dapper stylish character for the first time. There was also buzz that the actor had been paid handsomely for the film.
Says a source from the sets, "The film is not happening and some of the cast members have no clue when is the next shoot schedule. As of now, nobody knows what's really going on."
So was this the factor that prompted Nawaz's decision? However, 2012's most noticed actor has been maintaining that as it was clashing with his other film directed by Bengali filmmaker Buddhadeb Dasgupta, he had to opt out.
The mahurat of the film was held on February 9 at a bungalow in Madh Island. Among his co-stars were Minissha Lamba, Prashant Narayanan, Yuvraj Parasar, Payal Rohatgi and Kapil Sharma.
