In an interview with News 18, Nawaz had opened up about working with trans people. He had revealed that he learnt a lot about their journeys. He said, “I’m working with a lot of trans-people in Haddi. I was in an environment with 20-25 of them. Their way of looking at the world is completely different. That was really interesting. I learned so much about their journeys. I don’t want my character to look like a caricature. I want to feel the character in my bones rather than just enact the part. And that is why I decided to stay with them (trans-people). I’m looking forward to seeing how it shapes up eventually.”
Haddi is all set to release in 2023.
