Mumbai, September 16: Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra's upcoming feature "Serious Men", headlined by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, will premiere on Netflix on October 2.
Writen by Bhavesh Mandalia, the movie is based on a 2010 novel of the same name by Manu Joseph.

"I am excited about this film as I waited almost 20 years to work with Sudhir Mishra. It's a dream come true. I can't wait for the audience to watch 'Serious Men' and join this journey with me, this Gandhi Jayanti," the actor said in a statement.
