Nawazzudin Siddiqui in ‘End of Bandit Queen’

Nawazuddin SiddiquiThe super talented Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who was seen in films like Talaash and Gangs of Wasseypur, is gearing up to work on a second biopic – “End of Bandit Queen” – based on the life of Sher Singh Rana, prime accused in the murder of bandit-turned-politician Phoolan Devi in 2001.

“I will start shooting for this biopic film in March 2013. It is a biopic on Sher Singh Rana. The film is tentatively titled ‘End of Bandit Queen’. We will be shooting in India, Bangladesh and Afghanistan,” Siddiqui said.

Sher Singh Rana is currently lodged at Delhi’s Tihar Jail, and Nawazzudin says he will meet him soon.

“I will be meeting Rana who is in Tihar jail right now. Then I will get a clear picture about my character. So this is the only research that I will have to do to fit the bill,” said the actor, who has received critical acclaim for his work in movies like “Kahaani” and “Gangs Of Wasseypur”.

‘End of Bandit Queen’ is directed by theatre director Barry John.



  • one of the most talented actor. U make a deep impression in taalash though ur role is very small. Best of luck taimur.

  • Dear guys, there is norms and particular trend for a certain time and certain industries. Look at the Hollywood and look how the rise of guardians and Lincoln and Argo is trending and look at our movies 5 years back and that is not similar how our movies trends now. During dabangg time Saturday and Sunday figures are on increasing trends while weekdays r pretty low while these days weekdays r competitively better and Sunday business seems wy better than Saturday. Also not to forget there is 31st dec and 1st jan holiday which will boost d2 business tremendously so it’s foregone conclusion now that d2 is going to have 2nd highiest 2nd week business after 3 idiots. Also guys plz don’t misinterpret movie business by net income coz it is distributor share which is rather more significant. That way 3 idiots is 2nd biggest film with 99 cr dist. Share after ett’s 106 cr share. Dabangg2 may have outside chance of getting close to 3 idiots but ett no way. N also salman’s all movies in pipeline seems mind blowing be it no entry mein entry, stalin remake, rajshree’s next, sher khan, prabhudeva next etc, all of them r atbb in making n they will definitely gross pass ett and 3 idiots for sure. tnx.

  • To raj, I could not understand why y did u put a long deabate in this article for salman khan?? No concern regarding this article!
