The badass Nawazuddin Siddiqui from Sacred Games has now toned it down to show off his romantic side in his upcoming film Motichoor Chaknachoor. Watching Siddiqui in this new avatar is going to be quite refreshing as he gets to toggle substantially in the comedy genre.

In this film, Nawazuddin plays the character of Pushpinder, a man in his forties who is desperate to get married. He has reached a place where he will marry anyone he gets. We then meet his neighbor Annie (Athiya Shetty) who is also looking to get married but she has one condition, she will marry only an NRI so that she can fulfill her dream of traveling abroad. Pushpinder and Annie get married but soon realize that life isn’t going to be ‘happily married’ yet.

In a recent interview, Nawazuddin said, “When I read this script, the oddly, straight laced and unintentionally funny Pushpinder (my character), really stood out.” He further said, “His desperation to get married drives him a little crazy forcing him down some insane alleys of life. I had a great time playing a character like him for the first time and working with Athiya Shetty, who essays the role of NRI husband seeking Annie so beautifully.”

Directed by Debamitra Hassan, Motichoor Chaknachoor also features Vibha Chibber, Navni Parihar, Vivek Mishra, Karuna Pandey, Sanjeev Vats, Abhishek Rawat, Sapna Sand, and Usha Nagar. Mark your calendars, this laughter riot is all set to hit the big screen on November 15.
