Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the prevalent actors from the Bollywood film industry. He is quite popular for his hardcore films as well as the deglamorized films in Bollywood. As of now, this actor has more than 5 films in his hand. Due to his immense popularity, all his fans and followers couldn’t stand straight whenever they see him in public.
One of the craziest fans of Nawazuddin pulled the actor back by the next to get a selfie moment with the actor. This incident took place in Kanpur. Siddiqui was seen in the film Thackeray in recent times. He says, I got injured, got a hand fracture and a muscle pull. But theek hai, kya karein, uska apna tareeka tha (it’s ok, what do we do, it’s their way). Unka Pyaar Hai. (It’s their love).’
Despite having an immense fan base all over the country, his charm in the films couldn’t bring success to it. We may not witness the love of fans towards the actor in the form of box office collections. Despite featuring in the superstar films, the films didn’t go well but the actor could gain some popularity among the public.
When he was asked about the same, he gave clarification to it. He said, Ek aadh picture flop ho Gayi, usse thodi na change ho jaata hai! (One or two films flopped, it doesn’t change anything). Bade stars bade stars hote hain. (Big stars are big stars). Small budget films become a hit, but even they have Bollywood masala in them. We even compromise on content-driven films. We add five songs, comedy… Tummbad, Manto (both 2018), these are the hardcore films. Actual content-driven films don’t work. When they work, a change will come.’
He has a notion that the films that have real content will definitely win the hearts of the people. Such films have immense fame and appreciation abroad compared to our country. The films that are seen in most of the foreign festivals are actually hardcore content-driven movies. They definitely gain accolades from the audience. Such audience is pretty less in India, says Nawazuddin.
