Mumbai: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's next film Anwar Ka Ajeeb Kissa directed by Buddhadeb Dasgupta will premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Three of Buddhadeb’s films were recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

These days, Nawaz is busy dubbing for the film in order to be able to submit the film to the organising committee in Venice on time. Nawaz’s character in the film hails from a small town and is a detective by profession.

A source close to the actor says, “The film is currently in the post-production stage and Nawaz has kept aside bulk dates and has been dubbing nonstop for his portions. The makers too, are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the film is ready on time for submission.”

Incidentally, the National Award winning director Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s Uttara, had won him Special Director Award at the celebrated film fest back in 2000. After its premiere at Venice, the film which was shot mostly in Kolkata will be travelling across the globe only to get an India release next year.

“Dasgupta’s films, thanks to the human subjects they deal with, are known for striking the chord with global audiences irrespective of where they come from,” says another source.
