Nawaz strikes again : Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a powerhouse of talent and this time too the actor makes a solid impression on the big screen.

Getting into character: Nawazuddin Siddiqui as APJ Abdul Kalam may not exactly be a bad proposition. The actor shares the same lean frame and body structure as the late former President of India and given the fact that he is a brilliant actor one can hazard a guess that he would do complete justice to the role. While some recent reportage suggested that the Nawaz may essay the role of India’s most loved President, the actor denied this news.

Speaking at the trailer launch of Raman Raghav 2.0, Nawaz said, “I have not yet been approached but it would be great if I get a chance. He was a great personality and I would be happy if I get a chance to play him on screen.”

High praise: Nawaz who leaves a mark not just on the audience but even on his co-stars expressed his delight at having received high compliments from none other than Amitabh Bachchan himself. The superstar who teamed up with Nawaz in TE3N was effusive in his praise for the Gangs of Wasseypur star.

Fighting demons: In the trailer, Vicky Kaushal’s performance as a drug addict cop named Raghavan, who is going through emotional and mental problems in his life, also shows promise. Raghavan is shown taking charge of the investigation to hunt down Ramanna, and identifying the reason behind these brutal murders.

When Anurag speaks: The director told reporters, "Censor Board has been in a way, kindest to this film. They actually liked it. For me, there are many things in the film I want them to stay intact. I would not be satisfied with a single cut. To avoid any kind of cuts whatever it will take, we will do."
