Mumbai: Sacred Games stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and actress Radhika Apte will soon be seen together in the upcoming Netflix original titled Raat Akeli Hai.
Netflix released the trailer of the crime thriller on Friday. The trailer shows Nawazuddin (Jatil Yadav) in the role of a cop, investigating the murder of a local politician. While the family of the politician, who is killed during his second wedding, calls it an accident, Nawazuddin smells a rat.
During the course of the interrogation, he realises that each member of the family is hiding something. He also faces hurdle from a sinister politician (Aditya Srivastava) and his own boss (Tigmanshu Dhulia) while investigating the case.
Radhika is seen playing the role of a mysterious woman, who is the new bride of the deceased. The trailer also shows Nawazuddin inclining towards Radhika’s sequence of events and using her inputs to try and solve the murder case. But similar to the recent Hollywood film starring Daniel Craig, Knives Out, nobody from the family can be ruled out as a suspect, even Radhika Apte’s character.

It marks casting director Honey Trehaan’s directorial debut, and also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Aditya Srivastava, Shweta Tripathi, Ila Arun, Khalid Tyabji, Shivani Raghuvanshi and Tigmanshu Dhulia.
Nawazuddin plays the role of Jatil Yadav, and feels “Raat Akeli Hai” is the kind of story that draws “you in immediately and takes you along the winding journey”.
“I play the role of an inspector who is investigating the murder of a powerful man. A complex character, Jatil is a social misfit and awkward around women. He is always in the search of justice — and does not rest until he finds out the truth,” he added.
Talking about the film, Trehan said: “Crime thrillers have always been one of my favourite genres in cinema, right from the early noir films of the 40s to Hitchcock’s ‘wrong man’ films and Agatha Christie’s whodunnits. I always wanted to tell a story that is grounded in the reality that I know, while also honouring the classical features of a noir thriller and that is what ‘Raat Akeli Hai’ is.”
“Raat Akeli Hai” will be released on Netflix on July 31.
