Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be returning to Netflix with the new project Serious Men, directed by seasoned filmmaker Sudhir Mishra. The film will be based on Mumbai and will tell the story of an overachiever from an underprivileged background, who tries to monetise his son's new-found fame as a child-prodigy to improve their economic and societal conditions.
Talking about the film, the actor said in a statement, "This is my third project with Netflix and returning to the streaming service always feels like a homecoming. I am excited about this film as I waited almost 20 years to work with Sudhir Mishra. It’s a dream come true. I can’t wait for the audience to watch Serious Men and join this journey with me, this Gandhi Jayanti.”
