Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra had made quite an impact in their debut film, Dangal opposite Aamir Khan. Though Fatima bagged her next, Thugs of Hindostan right after Dangal, Sanya hadn’t signed anything until now. Sanya will now be seen in Ritesh Batra’s next, opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
“Set in Mumbai, it’s a love story of sorts between a poor photographer and his muse,” said Ritesh about the film. And while Sanya is all in for different genres, this is is going to be a real challenge for her because she’s not much of a romantic in real life.
The film consists of an ensemble cast but Sanya and Nawaz will be leading the way for The Lunchbox fam director.
