Crime thrillers in Indian movies spice up the story by depicting episodes that are intertwined with mystery, emotions and suspense. After Manto, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has green signaled his next. The actor has signed Honey Trehan's directorial debut Raat Akeli Hai which is touted to be a crime thriller.

As the makers of the movie were looking out for the female protagonist for the film, it seems that they have zeroed down on one. Reports suggest that Radhika Apte has been finalized to play the female lead opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
The film reunites Nawazuddin and Radhika after their earlier collaboration together in Sriram Raghavan's 2015 thriller Badlapur and Ketan Mehta's biographical drama Manjhi - The Mountain Man.

"It's a love story set in the heartland of India. Honey was on the lookout for his leading lady for a while now and thought Radhika fit the part.Radhika and Honey have known each other for many years, while Nawaz and Radhika get along well, too. She loved the script and instantly gave her nod to the project. The team is set to start shooting in January," informs a source close to the development to a leading tabloid.

The debutante director is currently looking into the pre-production of the movie. Honey Trehan was earlier signed to make his directorial debut with Vishal Bhardwaj's Sapna Didi starring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. However, creative differences forced him to take a step back from the project.

"Owing to differences in creative understanding, we have mutually and amicably decided that it would be best for our film if Vishal sir took over as director,"
Honey had said in a statement.
