Actor Vineet Kumar Singh was hired to lead producer Manish Mundra’s directorial debut, Siya. The social drama film is the third collaboration between Singh and Mundra, best known for supporting critically acclaimed films such as Masaan, Ankhon Dekhi, Kadvi Hawa and Newton.
The two have already worked together on the upcoming film Aadhaar and the internationally award-winning film Tryst With Destiny.
“Manish has made such good films and I am very happy and excited to be working on his Siya directorial debut. This is my third film with him and the first as a director and actor, ”said Singh in a statement.
The 36-year-old actor said his role was quite “challenging and different” from what he has played in the past.
“As an actor, I’m always looking for new and challenging roles and Siya is one of them, it’s different,” he added.
The Mukkabaaz actor said he has started preparations for the role and will soon be leaving for Uttar Pradesh to shoot the film’s first schedule.
