A source says, “Nishant will be doing an episodic in Wanted as it’s a show based on real-life stories. He will be playing a real-life character of a rapist from a well-to-do background. It is an exactly opposite of the character he has played in Adaalat, in which he played someone closely modeled on Shah Rukh Khan’s Suriji in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. But, here he will be the bad guy who looks like any other well-behaved citizen but is a deadly rapist.
“This guy that he plays had raped a German girl and he has been wanted for the past eight years.”
Nishant confirmed his participation and said, “I have never done any character that is this negative but this will help me break my image. I feel it’s good to do an episodic as you get to learn a lot.”
