‘OUR CIN­EMA IS NO LESS THAN WORLD CIN­EMA’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Ac­tor Nawazud­din Sid­diqui (right) has said that the qual­ity of In­dian movies is as good as any other film in­dus­try in the world. “Our cin­ema is no less than any world cin­ema. We are mak­ing good films and they are get­ting ap­pre­ci­ated world­wide, es­pe­cially at film fes­ti­vals. It’s not nec­es­sary to do a Hol­ly­wood film to prove one’s skills as an ac­tor. I don’t think I need to do Hol­ly­wood flicks. If I get an op­por­tu­nity, I will con­sider it. But it’s not a do or die sit­u­a­tion,” says Nawazud­din, who will be seen in the Hol­ly­wood pro­ject, Lion. The 42-year-old says that he is con­tent with his work so far. Ask him if he wants to do a TV show, and he says: “I don’t watch TV. There’s no time for that. I am en­joy­ing act­ing in movies. So, it’s bet­ter to fo­cus on that only.” He adds that he just hopes to grow with ev­ery film as an ac­tor.
