After quite a long fight with the CBFC, finally Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi-starrer ‘Haraamkhor’ made it to the theatres on January 13, 2017. It is a story of a student falling in love with a teacher and the problems they suffer. An interesting movie made in a compact budget. Nawazuddin, who is known for giving stellar performances in any given role, was in love with this script and keeping the budget of the film in mind, agreed to work at minimum charge.
Producer Guneet Monga just could not stop herself from praising the actor’s generosity and said, “Nawaz and everyone on the project worked on minimal money or no money at all. Ours is a passion project and we did everything we could to get the film made. Nawaz loved the script and insisted to work pro bono on the film understanding the limitations of the budget overall. He was sweet to only charge Rupee 1 from us literally as a token of his efforts. His support and work made the film possible!”
Now that’s kind of Nawazuddin. Critics too have been kind enough to praise ‘Haraamkhor’.
