*Working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui was amazing as he’s my favorite actor – Sanya Malhotra *
Bollywood actor Sanya Malhotra who amazed the audiences with her brilliant performance in Badhaai Ho is all set and geared up for her next film with Nawazuddin Siddiqui titled “Photograph”.
She said it was a very big milestone as it gave her the chance opportunity to work with her favourite actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
“I started shooting for ‘Photograph’ right after ‘Dangal’ so, it’s really special for me,” said Sanya at a recent media interaction.
“It was my second film, though ‘Patakha’ (by Vishal Bhardwaj) got released after ‘Dangal’. I had really good experience working with Ritesh Batra and Nawaz sir. It was a huge thing for me to work with Nawaz sir because he is my favorite actor,” she added.
Further she also added, “Initially, I was a bit nervous working with him. But then I watched all his interviews to know how he prepares for his roles so that I could chill out working alongside”.
Going on she also said, “When he used to come on the set, he would leave his starry vibes back at home. He was this completely transformed like totally into his character. I got to learn a lot from him,” said the Badhaai Ho actress.
Photograph is centered and based on a struggling street photographer played by Nawazuddin in the film who is constantly pressured to get married by his grandmother.
Later he convinces a shy stranger played by Sanya Malhotra to pose as his fiancee. Then their pairing develops a connection that changes both of them completely.
The film will be featuring and premiering at Sundance Film Festival 2019.
“Photograph” has been written and directed by Ritesh Batrra, who is also the film’s co-producer along with Voila Fugen, Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani and Michael Weber.
The 2019 edition of Sundance Film Festival where the film “Photograph” will be screened and featured is going to be held at Park City, Utah in the US from January 24 to February 3, 2019.
