Madras Cafe is turning out to be a bag of surprises even before its release. Get ready to watch India’s most loved quiz master Siddhartha Basu for the first time on the silver screen. Adored by kids and adults for his show ‘Quiz Time’ on Doordarshan, he is also known as the father of the television quiz shows in India.
He is also the man behind country’s most favourite quiz show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ as well as ‘Dus Ka Dum’. Siddhartha Basu is making his acting debut with Madras Cafe. However, he will not be quizzing people this time and will be seen playing the role of the head of an intelligence agency. Needless to say that the role certainly befits the man’s image.
'Madras Cafe' starring John Abraham and Nargis Fakhri has been directed by Shoojit Sircar and is scheduled to release nationwide in theatres on 23rd August. It is co-produced by JA Entertainment, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Rising Sun Films.
