Nawaz always looks out for a ‘good’ director
Nawazuddin Siddiqui (left) has time and again impressed us with his acting skills and choice of roles. But if you’re thinking that he signs a film because of its script, that’s not really the case. The director of the film matters more to Nawaz.
“People say that the script is important, and I agree to some extent. But the director is more important, as a good one can create magic even with a bad or average script, but a bad director can kill even a good script,” says the actor, who will be directed by filmmaker Kabir Khan in his upcoming film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, also starring actor Salman Khan. Nawaz has earlier worked with Kabir in New York (2009) and with Salman in Kick (2014).
“I know Kabir’s working style, so it brings a comfort zone and I’m working with Salman sahab for the second time, so there is a comfort level with him too,” says the 41-year-old.
In the film, Nawaz will be seen playing a Pakistani reporter, who helps Salman in his journey. “The biggest task for me is the honesty of the character. Whatever role I play, it should look authentic. I put in all my efforts to achieve this in every film,” he says.
The film, which also features actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, is about a young mute girl from Pakistan, who finds herself lost in India with no way to head back home, across the border.
