In 2017, Nawazuddin Siddiqui shared his thought about the difference between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan on AIB, a collective comedy trip. Being an extraordinary actor he is mostly seen in independent films but also manages to do mainstream films merging with the actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman khan. He made a fantastic on working with them in the films like Raees and Kick accordingly.
After he was asked on the show to identify some difference between the two leading actors, he was hilarious,
“Shah Rukh bhai ka hai, ek scene ko jab tak uska… kyunki theatre kiya hai unhone… Mujhe laga ek actor ke saath kaam kar raha hu (With Shah Rukh, with every scene… because he’s done theatre himself… I felt like I was working with a real actor). Bhai ka yeh hai ki ek scene hogaya, ek baar hogaya, ab dobara nahi karenge Bhai (With Salman, a scene is shot only once. No second takes).”
Replying to the criticism such as ‘sell-out by independent film community’ about being more into the independent film he says, “Meri chhoti filmein chal sakti hain, kyunki maine yeh badi filmein ki hain. Tu chala ke dikha de (My independent films work because I’ve done these big films. You try).”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui was starred in the movies like Gangs of Wasseypur Part 2, Kahaani, Raman Raghav 2.0, Haraamkhor, Manto, and Photograph and series such as Sacred Games and McMafia. Last year he was in the series on Netflix are Serious Men, Raat Akeli Hai.
