There is no doubt that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a dedicated actor. Known for portraying dark and intense characters, Nawazuddin has replaced Farhan Akhtar in Shahrukh Khan’s Raees. He will be playing a policeman in the film and the role demands Nawazuddin to put on 20 kilos. The Gangs Of Wasseypur star already started pumping up for the role and it will be interesting to see him looking stouter than his usual skinny self.
Raees is a crime-drama starring Shahrukh Khan and Sonam Kapoor and King Khan will play the role of a bootlegger in the film. It is based in Gujarat and will go on floors after the monsoons this year. It is slated to release in time for Eid in 2015.
