Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Nawazud­din Sid­diqui (left), who will be seen in his next film Mom with Sridevi (in­set), says that ac­cord­ing to him, she is the world’s best ac­tor.

“My ad­mi­ra­tion for her (Sridevi) was way be­fore I thought of work­ing with her,” says Nawazud­din, who is play­ing a piv­otal role in the film. For the 43-year-old ac­tor, the sig­nif­i­cance of a role is not de­fined by its length. In an ear­lier in­ter­view with Hin­dus­tan Times, Nawaz said, “For me, a role is a role. It doesn’t mat­ter if it’s big or small, as long as it is good. It gives me more vis­i­bil­ity as an ac­tor and that’s what I am here for. Money was never my cri­te­ria to be­come an ac­tor. Plus, ‘good-look­ing’ is such a sub­jec­tive term. God has made ev­ery­one dif­fer­ent yet equal, so who are we to dif­fer­en­ti­ate and call some­one con­ven­tional or un­con­ven­tional?”

With all praise for the English Vinglish ac­tor, he adds, “If one gets a chance to work with such a bril­liant ac­tor, who will think of leav­ing the op­por­tu­nity? Same was my case and I per­son­ally be­lieve that Sride­viji is world’s best ac­tress.”

Dur­ing the trailer launch of Mom, Sridevi even ex­pressed her ad­mi­ra­tion for the ac­tor and went on say­ing that she has a lot of re­spect for him. Af­ter the hia­tus, the 53-year-old, who marked her come­back in 2012, is all set to im­press with her met­tle yet again in the in­tense drama.
