Not Radhika Apte but Nawazuddin Siddiqui In Phobia 2Jul 12, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
The 2016 thriller ‘Phobia’, featuring Radhika Apte was definitely one of those rare psychological dramas that are appreciated by the critics as well as the audience alike. And a film like that certainly deserves a sequel.
And while the makers have decided on a second installment to the film, this time around the protagonist of the film would not be Radhika Apte.
The extremely talented Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been roped in to play the lead in ‘Phobia 2’. And while Radhika’s character Mehak suffered from agoraphobia in the film, Nawaz’s character will have aviophobia.
The producer of the film Viki Rajani confirmed the news to a daily, as he said, “After Nawaz had wrapped up ‘Munna Michael’, we met at his residence and jammed on this script. He immediately gave his nod. ‘Phobia’ will always have a high-caliber actor as performance is paramount. Nawaz suits this character perfectly.”
Reportedly, the film is set in a plane and will begin from the point when Nawaz boards the flight. Interesting!
Meanwhile, the powerhouse of talent has two films releasing soon – ‘Munna Michael’ and ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’, post which Nawazuddin will begin shoot for his sci-fi adventure ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke' in which he plays an astronaut and then he’ll start ‘Phobia 2’.
