First, it was rock star James as playback singer in Hindi film, and now it is over to model-turned-actress Nusrat Faria, to make a Bollywood debut.
If everything goes well, Nusrat will become the first-ever Bangladeshi actress to play a character in a Hindi film.
The actress will be seen sharing screen space with Bollywood actors Emraan Hashmi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Bishnu Dutta’s ‘Gawah, The Witness’, Nusrat confirmed this to Prothom Alo.
Bishnu Dutta, talking to The Times of India, said, “I can’t disclose much about Nusrat’s character now. All I say is that Nusrat has shades of grey.”
Emraan is a CBI officer in the film who quits his job after an accident and starts working as a private detective. Nawazuddin plays the role of a business honcho and Paayel will act his wife. Ashutosh Rana plays a doctor who tries to treat Payel but fails. What happens next is what the film is all about, Bishnu Dutta added.
“I liked the script and my character, but I am yet to sign on the dotted line. My role is pivotal to the plot and we have to do a look test for that,” Nusrat told Times of India.
Nusrat has recently acted in an Indo-Bangladesh joint venture Bangla film, ‘Aashiqui’.
Earlier, Nagarbaul’s frontman James won the hearts of music buffs through his songs ‘Bheegi Bheegi’ and ‘Alvida’ featured in Bollywood films ‘Gangster’ and ‘Life in a Metro’.
