Powerhouse performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui , who has always been a regular at the Cannes Film Festival, returns to the French Riviera to promote his film Manto.
The star will be accompanied by the film’s director Nandita Das as they will introduce audiences to the film based on writer-playwright Saadat Hasan Manto’s life at the promo screening.
Nawazuddin, who is currently shooting in Croatia for an international series based on the Mac Mafia, is excited to go to Cannes as he loves the atmosphere of the festival and enjoys watching a variety of films from across the world.
Says Nawaz, “I leave for Cannes on May 18, and the promo of the film will be screened around May 20. I’m excited about going to Cannes, and it is a special moment for me. It’s a great festival, and some of the world’s best movies are screened there every year.” Adding that, “It’s special every time. Every actor, big or small, is respected there. It’s an experience that every actor needs to be a part of at least once in their lives. The last time, there was too much attention on my clothes (chuckles). But this time, I’m not there for long, so I am yet to decide what to wear,”
