The first look is quite impressive and Nawazuddin bears a striking resemblance to the late writer as he’s seen wearing a pair of spectacles and a hairstyle similar to that of Manto. The film will be directed Nandita Das and apart from Nawazuddin, another Bollywood actor Rasika Duggal will be seen potraying Manto’s wife safia.
