Nawazuddin was at a close shave while he was shooting in Maoist-affected area of Shimultala in Bihar for Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s movie Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa. The shooting area is a beautiful hill situated in Jamui District. The hill is known for its Maoist activities.
As the film demanded the location, so Nawazuddin and his unit braved the dangers. However, last Friday the team had to hurriedly leave Shimultala to avoid a confrontation with the Maoists.
Nawaz is known for his power-packed performances in movie like Miss Lovely, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Kahaani and Talaash.
The actor said, “We had to wrap up for our shooting on Friday and quickly leave as there was a bandhcall from the Maoists on Saturday. No one in the area dares to defy closure orders from the Maoists. We had no option but to pack our bags and leave.”
“I wanted to work with Buddhadeb Dasgupta from the time I saw his film Tahader Katha. It was visually stunning. And also, this brilliant director returns to Hindi cinema for the first time since he made Andhi Gali.” he spoke.
The shooting was finished in Kolkata.
