Ghoomketu Trailer

Nawazuddin plays the titular Ghoomketu, an aspiring writer chasing his Bollywood dream, while Anurag surprises viewers with a hilarious turn as a corrupt cop. “Working with Anurag is always a journey,” confesses Nawazuddin. “But on set, he’s the captain, and for the first time, I had to wait for his ‘cut,’ not the other way around!”

Their collaboration began in 2007 with the gritty “Black Friday,” followed by gems like “Dev.D,” the “Gangs Of Wasseypur” saga, and “Sacred Games.” “Ghoomketu” expands their repertoire, boasting a talented cast that includes Ragini Khanna, Raghubir Yadav, and Ila Arun.

Nawazuddin & Anurag Reunite! Laughter & Lessons in "Ghoomketu" - New Film, New Dynamic

Nawazuddin finds special admiration for Raghubir Yadav’s improvisational magic: “Raghu bhai is a legend! He just goes with the flow, creating art from thin air. The director had to tell him to stop sometimes, that’s how incredible he is!”

Ghoomketu’s story mirrors Nawazuddin’s own journey. Hailing from a small village, he, like his character, grappled with adapting to Mumbai’s relentless pace and competitive spirit. “Everything becomes faster here – the cars, the people’s thoughts, even their lives,” he shares. “This film resonates with us because it reflects our shared experiences, both mine and Pushpendra Nath Misra, the writer-director.”

“Ghoomketu” promises laughter, introspection, and a fresh dynamic between two cinematic icons. As Nawazuddin aptly puts it, “We may be co-actors now, but our equation remains that of an actor and his muse. Anurag pushes me, challenges me, and that’s why, even after all these years, working with him feels like home.”
