South actor Kabir Duhan Singh to play the antagonist in Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tamannaah Bhatia starrer Bole Chudiyan


Nawazuddin Siddiqui is all set to feature next in Bole Chudiyan, which marks the directorial debut of his brother Shamas Nawab Siddiqui and is produced by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Bhatia under their banner Woodpecker Movies. The film grabbed headlines after Mouni Roy's abrupt exit and after much speculation, Tamannaah Bhatia was roped to essay the role of the female protagonist in Bole Chudiyan. While Anurag Kashyap is expected to play a pivotal role in the upcoming project, Nawazuddin recently welcomed Rajpal Yadav and Aditya Shrivastava to Bole Chudiyan family. And now we hear that the latest addition in the film's cast is none other than South actor Kabir Duhan Singh, who is all set to make his Hindi debut with the love story.

Shamas confirmed the news to a leading daily and said, “Kabir plays Mansoor, Tamannaah’s brother. It’s a very important role and I had spoken to a lot of actors, many among them from the Hindi film industry, but I was the most impressed with Kabir. Besides his good acting skills, he is also a nice person which is important. He hails from Haryana, and his accent is exactly what I wanted for this film. I told him to just be himself." The debutante filmmaker also revealed that he has started his workshops with Kabir and said, “In the film, Kabir hails from a zamindar family, while Nawaz's character is a middle-class man and the two never get along. There are also three crucial action sequences in the film."
