Super talented Bollywood actor and now star Nawazuddin Siddiqui is going great in his career. The Sacred Games star recently says that he never expected filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani to become such a great filmmaker, not only in India but all over the world.
While Hirani once said that he never thought Nawazuddin would go on to become a huge star. To this, the actor said, “I read the statement which he made about me in the newspaper. I did a very small role in Munna Bhai MBBS which was directed by Rajkumar Hirani. He used to be a shy person when I worked with him. I also feel surprised how he became such a renowned director. I never expected that he would become such a great filmmaker not only India but all over the world.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui began his career with a few small roles. He showed his excellent performance in Gangs of Wasseypur and gained a lot of recognition. Among his all small roles, he appeared in Rajkumar Hirani’s debut film Munna Bhai MBBS also in the role of a thief.
The actor was last featured in Manto. The film was a biographical drama about the famous Urdu author Saadat Hasan Manto. Nandita Das wrote and directed this film. Currently, the actor is receiving applause for web series of Netflix, Sacred Games and is gearing for season 2. The show starred Saif Ali KhKhan, Radhika Apte as lead roles alongside Nawazuddin. The actor will next be seen in AbhijitPanse’s Thackeray and in Ritesh Batra’s Photograph co-starring Dangal fame Sanya Malhotra.
A few days back, while talking about doing Manto and Thackeray, the actor had said, “I am doing Manto, Thackeray and have done love stories as well. So, I am not just good at negative characters. I have done varied roles. Negative character term used to be prominent in 6the 0s, 70s and till 90s. The change started happening from the 90s. Now, we have started to show goodness in negative characters and today, even a hero has a tinge of grey shade in him. In films, I strongly believe it is the hero who is the most typecast. These days each character is more close to how a human is. We do not have an AmrishPuri or Jeevan, that time has passed. We should get rid of this ‘villain’ or ‘negative role’ categories. Real-life people are flawed.”
