After directing the acclaimed biographical drama, ‘Manto’ (2018), starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Nandita Das is getting ready to direct another exciting project with none other than Kapil Sharma to play the lead.

A source close to the production insisted that the untitled feature is not a comedy, and how the pair have been in talks for some time now, reports Pinkvilla.

A source told the publication, “Nandita and Kapil are both excited to collaborate on this project. They come from very different worlds so surely something magical is brewing. They are both looking forward to working with each other and pushing their own boundaries. They will work out on the dates and other logistics once the final paperwork is done. Nandita will also be co-producing the film, with Sameer Nair’s Applause Entertainment.”

Das is also well known for the political drama, ‘Firaaq’ (2008), which featured Naseeruddin Shah, Deepti Naval, Paresh Rawal, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tisca Chopra and Shahana Goswami.

Meanwhile Sharma, who is currently busy with ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, has earlier acted in films like ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’ (2015) and ‘Firangi’ (2017).
