Don-2 Villain to coach Farhan Akhtar for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!

He played the goon in Farhan Akhtar’s last directorial release Don 2. And now, he will be seen coaching the filmmaker in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

Nawab Shah, who was much appreciated in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer, will be seen as Farhan Akhtar’s coach in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s forthcoming biopic. And it was Farhan himself who wanted Nawab to play the role, revealed the actor.

I had to live up to the expectations of Farhan Akhtar, who cast me in this important role in Don 2 without any auditions because he believed in my abilities post Lakshya. The action team from Berlin was doubly impressed with my delivery.

Yes, I have signed the film yesterday. I am happy to work with Farhan once again. It will be challenging to play his coach and I am looking forward to the shoot.
