While Gangs of Wasseypur- 2 is yet to release and has Nawaz an even bigger role, the actor is leaving no stone unturned to establish his foothold in Bollywood. The latest is that Nawaz has been signed to play the main lead opposite Bipasha Basu in the supernatural drama Aatma to be directed by Suparn Verma. The film is being produced by Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak.
Confirming the same, Suparn said, "Yes we have signed Nawaz to play the main lead. He is a phenomenal actor and what you will see of him in Aatma is something you've never seen before. Also the film has Bipasha Basu as the female lead in a stellar role. We start shooting from July 18 and it's a straight start to finish 50 day schedule in Mumbai and Panchgani"
The film is also said to have some international crew. Suparn confirms, "Yes my DOP is from Denmark - Sophie Winqvise whose mentor is none other than Oscar winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle of Slumdog Millionaire fame."
