Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is gearing up for his forthcoming film Genius has said that he never expected to get an opportunity to work with Anil Sharma who has made successful films like Gadar-Ek Prem Katha and Apne in the past.

Nawazuddin was interacting with media to promote Genius along with co-actors Utkarsh Sharma, Ishita Chauhan and director Anil Sharma. Sharing his experience of working with Anil Sharma for the first time, he said, “I have watched his films since my childhood and I remember people used to go in large numbers in theatres when his films released.

“I never expected that one day I will get an opportunity to work with him. One thing that I really admire about his direction is his capability of transforming a simple character into an extra-ordinary one,” Nawazuddin said.

Talking about the film, in which he is playing a negative lead, Nawazuddin said, “It’s really an entertaining film made for all age groups and all kinds of audience.” “I have always been fascinated with Anil (Sharma) sir’s treatment for his films and the treatment of this film is really stylish and larger than life. He has a unique and interesting style to present his stories,” he said.

The film also features Ishita Chauhan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Ayesha Jhulka and Mithun Chakraborty in key roles. Directed by Anil Sharma and produced by Anil Sharma Productions and Soham Rockstar Entertainment, the film is slated to release on August 24.
