The actor-director duo previously collaborated on films like Black Friday, Gangs of Wasseypur franchise, Raman Raghav 2.0 and the Netflix original Sacred Games.

In Bole Chudiyan, Siddiqui is set to play a passionate lover and has already started preparing for the film, the statement read.

Anurag Kashyap has acted in a number of films before. He was seen in cameo roles in many films, including Black Friday, No Smoking, Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, Luck by Chance, Dev D, Gulaal, Bhoothnath Returns and Happy New Year.
