It isn't just Alia Bhatt who's getting ready to take music lessons. For the role of a classical vocalist in a forthcoming film the method-actor par excellence Nawazuddin Siddiqui would be hiring himself a Hindustani classical vocal maestro to train him. The film entitled The Music Teacher to be directed by Sarthak Dasgupta requires Nawazuddin to be an adept vocalist. While an expert vocalist can sing for Nawaz he would like to look convincing while putting forward the nuances, hence the tutoring.
Nawaz is also making significant inroads into commercial Hindi cinema . He has been signed in to play a major role in the next Salman Khan blockbuster Kick directed by Sajid Nadiadwala. "I've been told not to say anything about my role. But I am looking forward to working with Mr Salman Khan. He is such a huge star and doing terrific work," says Nawaz.
