The Manjhi performer is concerned whether his later parts will likely be -received as the ones he is doing now
Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s come quite a distance in his career, but the success has not gone to his head. The truth is, he is now more worried than ever before he plays. This attempt is making him insecure.
But I understood I was an actor.”
Yet, as time passed, Nawazuddin’s insecurities transformed. Previously, he was concerned about getting parts and today he’s worried about selecting the most appropriate ones: “Business structure mein hi insecurity hai….Convention hi insecurity wala hai. Once I used to be looking to create my way in, about 70% pictures had the exact same storyline — a heroine, a hero along with a villain. There was barely anything for anyone. I used to be not secure about getting work. The insecurity differs now.”
The Mountain Man garnering plenty of success, the insecurity is all about about his character changing his viewers: “Now, the insecurity is: in case the character will make its mark on the crowd or not. It is vital the character makes its mark.”
In spite of the acclaim he’s received, 41-year old Nawazuddin stays poor and has received more than he’d envisioned: “Jitna socha tha usse zyada mila. All I needed was to get work — display-time of the character did not matter to me. I am an actor and I needed to work — be it in, movies, theater or TV,” says Nawaz who’ll shortly be sharing screen space with Shahrukh Khan in Raees.
