Nawazuddin Siddiqui says that if his role in Raees will be appreciated, its solely because of Shah Rukh Khan. “Shahrukh Khan is the best co-actor. The response that he gives to you while performing scenes is terrific. I have seen most of the times that while shooting, actors don’t listen to your dialogues or see your expressions, and are mainly concerned about their lines,” he said.
Nawazuddin also said, “Whatever appreciation I get for my role in Raees will be just because of Shah Rukh Khan. He has respected his character a lot. Also, the chemistry between us is good.” His first release for the new year is debut director Shlok Sharma’s Haraamkhor, which hits screen on January 13. After that, he will be seen with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the much-awaited Raees.
Nawaz will be seen as a school teacher in Haraamkhor, he says he has never focused on building a set image for himself in Bollywood. And that’s what gives him a chance to experiment with every project in an age of digitization.
“I have never thought about creating an image for myself in Bollywood. I am an actor and just want to experiment with roles. I am ready to do all type of roles,” Nawazuddin said.
“I don’t want to build any image for myself. I don’t want people to say,’He does only a certain type of role’. I don’t want only to be the hero of the story. An actor’s weakness is the different roles that he can’t do. But I am keen to grab only those roles as I am here to challenge myself,”added the critically acclaimed talent.
He credits his acting skills to his training at the National School of Drama. “You gain a lot through training,” said the 42-year-old, who is endorsing social commerce platform addsbook.com.
