Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen in the lead role of the upcoming US indie film Laxman Lopez. The film is a Christmas-themed movie to be directed by Mexico’s Roberto Girault, director of local hits including 2017’s ‘La Leyenda Del Diamante’, 2015’s ‘Los Arboles Mueren de Pie’ and ‘El Estudiante’ from 2009, reports ‘Variety’.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s project is led by New York-based Imagine Infinite Productions. Filming will take place entirely in the US at the end of the year. Further casting details are to be announced closer to the start of production. The producer is Lalit Bhatnagar, writer and co-producer of the horror project ‘Little Darling’.

Nawazuddin is in Cannes as part of the Indian government delegation to the festival and the rights market, where India has been named the first country of honour.

“The narration had me excited for multiple reasons. For starters, the opportunity to work in a Christmas movie is something very different and immediately had my attention. The director, Roberto Girault has shown his power and command over the camera, and the way he can unveil new sides to an actor. It is a welcome challenge that I often yearn for. And most importantly, the name, Laxman Lopez, had me instantly curious,” said Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

“I am very excited about this collaboration. This script is close to my heart and the transition of the story and the challenges that the lead character faces are sure to have everyone intrigued,” said Girault.

“When first read the script, I started my search to find the perfect Laxman Lopez and my mind immediately navigated to Nawazuddin. I have seen a few of his works and know that this role will bring out a lesser-known vulnerable side to him. It is a project that is sure to leave people with a smile on their face, and a lot of hunger in their tummy!”
