Nawazud­din doesn’t want to have a set im­age

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - PRASHANT SINGH

Ac­tor Nawazud­din Sid­diqui (right) says he’s try­ing to strike a bal­ance be­tween big ticket films and low bud­get ones.

“I am do­ing both (kinds of films), and it’s im­por­tant for me to cre­ate a dif­fer­en­tia­tor (by play­ing dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters). I don’t want to have a set im­age. I should know how to go about choos­ing my roles.”

What’s his ul­ti­mate as­pi­ra­tion, we ask. “It might sound poetic, but it’s the truth that I try to find my own self through ev­ery char­ac­ter I play. I thank God that I am in this field (of films). I want to go away hav­ing played thou­sands of char­ac­ters,” says Nawaz, adding that he never thought he would be the solo ac­tor in any film. “Such things never even cross my mind. The only thing I wanted and still want is that I should keep get­ting work,” says the 41-year-old whose last film, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, did ex­tremely well at the box of­fice.
