TO GO WITH India-Bollywood-entertainment-film-Siddiqui,INTERVIEW by Udita Jhunjhunwala This photo taken on March 4, 2015 shows Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui talking in an interview with AFP in Mumbai. It is a story worthy of a Bollywood plot: the son of a north Indian farmer, one of nine children, rising to become the face of independent Hindi cinema.

Miyan Kal Aana, a short film by Shamas Siddiqui, the younger brother of acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, will be screened at the Cannes International Film Festival as part of the Short Film Catalogue.

“I’m very happy that my first film got selected in the Cannes Court Meterrag Category. I would like to thank the film festival and every member who helped me put the film together and making it so special for me,” said Siddiqui.

He had a keen desire to direct and he took on the dream last year as he set out to make Miyan Kal Aana, which is produced by Nawazuddin.

Nawazuddin will unfortunately not be able to make it for the event due to his shooting commitment with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Miyan Kal Aana, which is 17.5 minutes long, touches upon the Halala law in Islam.
