The very outspoken and talented actor Rishi Kapoor will be seen in a special role in actress-filmmaker Nandita Das' Manto. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays the lead role of Saadat Hasan Manto, today took to Twitter to thank Rishi for joining the cast. 

"It was indeed a pleasure sharing the screen with @chintskap Sir. What an amazing energy you possess even now," he wrote. 

The 64-year-old actor also thanked Nawaz and expressed a desire to work with him in future.

"Thank you Nawaz! Did that bit for Nandita Das and "Manto"-title role played by you. We will have fun working together in the future. Regards!" Rishi tweeted. 

Om Puri was supposed to play a character in the film, but the actor passed away earlier this year and there can be a possibility that Rishi has replaced him in the movie. 

Manto also stars Rasika Dugal in the role of the writer's wife Safiyah.
