Nawazuddin Siddiqui has done several commercial films in recent times. But he deviates more towards independent, low-budget and unconventional cinema. Often, such indie actors look down upon commercial, mainstream actors and feel they are inferior. But Nawazuddin Siddiqui is slightly an exception and he has talked about this aspect in his autobiography ‘An Ordinary Life: A Memoir’.
The actor said that mainstream actors are getting better in their job and ensuring that they give convincing performances. He called Kangana Ranaut ‘amazing’ and then said, “Mark my words: Ranbir Kapoor will perform wonders.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui however enjoys working with stars especially in today’s times. He said that these superstars don’t have ego and are willing work with actors like him for the betterment of the scene and ultimately, the film. To prove his point, he gives the instance of Shah Rukh Khan, with whom he worked in Raees. In the first scene that he shot with SRK, Nawazuddin takes his own sweet time fiddling with his pen and then writing with it, thereby making the former restless. Believe it or not, Shah Rukh asked Nawazuddin for guidance before this shoot went on floors. He asked Nawazuddin, “Nawaz Bhai, you do whatever you need to do. Tell me what I need to do.” Nawazuddin claimed that some decades ago, no superstar would have done what SRK did.
