Nawazud­din Sid­diqui (left), who has Bol­ly­wood A-lis­ters wish­ing to work with him, says he does not want to think about the promi­nence of big stars like

Shahrukh Khan (above, right) and Sal­man Khan (above, left) as he con­sid­ers them as col­leagues.

Nawazud­din, who worked with Sal­man in Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan has just com­pleted his first sched­ule with Shahrukh Khan for Rahul Dho­lakia’s di­rec­to­rial, in which he plays a po­lice­man.

“When I am on set, Shahrukh and Sal­man are co-ac­tors for me. If I start think­ing that I am work­ing with Sal­man, then as an ac­tor I would not be able to im­pro­vise the char­ac­ter that I am play­ing. Dur­ing shoot­ing, I do not want to think of who I am work­ing with as it will cor­rupt my per­for­mance,” he told the media while talk­ing about his ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with both the Khans.

The 49-year-old ac­tor, who is rid­ing on the suc­cess of his last out­ing Man­jhi: The Moun­tain Man, will be seen with ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan in Su­joy Ghosh’s next.

“I think as an ac­tor, my work is to give the best per­for­mance. If I con­tinue to think about Shahrukh and Sal­man as stars then I am not show­ing proper re­spect to their char­ac­ters as well as mine. You should be hon­est about what you do,” he added.
