Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - IANS

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.
