If you have not yet heard about ‘Manto’ then you are clearly not from this era. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Manto is successfully into the Cannes Film Festival. And we couldn’t be more proud of the actor. Ever since Nawazuddin Siddiqui came to the industry, he made a spot for himself. His impeccable acting skills and roles made us bow down to the actor. Good news is that this time he is working his magic in this Nandita Das’s masterpiece. This biographical drama starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui has created a lot of buzzes. Plus, now that it is in the Cannes Film Festival, we cannot stop talking about this movie.
Manto Makes it Big In The Art Genre
Nandita Das is famous in the industry for making many art films and biographical dramas. Well, this time is not different either. Back with another bang movie, this time she has Nawazuddin as support. We cannot help but notice the striking similarity between Manto and Nawazuddin. The stills of Manto came to release and Nawazuddin looks exactly like him.
The movie is all set to make its debut at the Cannes Music Festival. And we are very much excited about it. The director of the festival Thierry Freemaux made the announcement. Apart from this, there are many movies on the list.
This is what Nawazuddin has to say in his tweet. “And it is possible that Saadat Hasan dies, but MANTO remains alive”. Glad to inform that ‘MANTO’ is selected for competition at #Cannes2018 in #UnCertainRegard section. Congratulations @nanditadas and Team #Manto”.
Even Nandita Das couldn’t help but post only good about the movie. She said, “We are in Cannes!! #Manto is selected in the official section- Un Certain Regards. An exciting moment for the entire crew & cast. @Viacom18Movies @HP @ajlucio5 @vikbatra @mantagoyal @Nawazuddin_S @RasikaDugal @chintskap @SirPareshRawal @tahirbhasinfc @Javedakhtarjadu @gurdasmaan”
Manto Gears Up For A Great Run
Well, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Manto is all set for a stellar run. The film will be in competition with other different films as well. Films such as Long Day’s Journey into the Night and Little Tickles are on the list. It is great to see how much an art film can touch the hearts of people. Well, we surely cannot wait for the movie to release in here. Nawaz, the talented actor will be donning the role of Saadat Hasan Manto. The author’s life in Mumbai and Pakistan is the main theme of the story.
All we can about the movie is that we are eager to watch it. All the best to Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
