Actress Nandita Das says she is having a tough time in casting for the role of Shyam in her upcoming film “Manto”, which is based on the life of writer Saadat Hasan Manto.
Nawazuddin is playing the titular role but the actress-filmmaker faced issues while casting for Manto’s closest friend, Sunder Shyam Chadda.
“…I thought that known young charming actors, wanting to play the layered character of Shyam, would be in abundance.
Intriguingly, all the ‘stars’ I approached said no without even reading the script or asking any questions about the role that was being offered.
