Nawazuddin to shoot his next film in Arunachal Pradesh

Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has said he will shoot his next film in Arunachal Pradesh. Smitten by the scenic beauty of Arunachal Pradesh, Nawazuddin, who attended the Reh celebrations at Anini in Dibang Valley district recently, promised to shoot his next film in the state.

The ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ actor, said that his next film which is in the script stage was initially planned to be shoot in Garhwal but after seeing the pictures of Arunachal Pradesh and its people on Chief Minister Pema Khandu’s twitter handle, the decision was changed.

“You will not know but I will tell you. Nowhere in the country have I ever seen such glowing, positive and serene faces. Arunachalees are blessed and you must be proud of it,” a release quoted acclaimed actor as saying.

In lighter veins, the actor said travelling to Anini from Dibrugarh reminded him of the Samuel Beckett play ‘Waiting for Godot’! “All through the 12-14 hours journey, I felt like ‘abhi aa jayega…abhi aa jayega’ but ‘kuch aa hi nahi raha tha! All the troubles and tiredness flew away when I saw the glowing faces of the people waiting for me,” the actor said.

He also credited the CM for extensively promoting the beauty of Arunachal Pradesh through his twitter handle.

He said that he never knew the scenic beauty of Arunachal Pradesh till he started following the tweets of the chief minister.

“I came to know about Arunachal Pradesh, its natural beauty and the colourful people only from his (Khandu’s) tweets! He is the best promoter and advertiser of the state!” he revealed.

The actor, however, did not reveal the name of the film.
