THE IN­TER­VIEW WITH BOL­LY­WOOD STAR Nawazud­din Sid­diqui was an ex­cel­lent read (‘I’ll break moun­tains for cin­ema – not love’, Oc­to­ber 2). What I en­joyed the most was the way the ar­ti­cle ex­plored this tal­ented ac­tor’s per­son­al­ity be­yond the fa­cade of the star he has be­come. In fact, I hap­pened to watch his latest film, Man­jhi - The Moun­tain Man, re­cently and en­joyed it thor­oughly. Just like the pro­tag­o­nist of the film, Nawazud­din too has over­come odds with his in­domitable spirit to be the suc­cess that he is now. I wish him all the luck.

NAWAZUD­DIN SID­DIQUI proves that a never-say-die spirit is vi­tal if you want to achieve your goals and re­alise your dreams. This so-called or­di­nary-look­ing man is ac­tu­ally a su­per­hero for all those who are fight­ing cyn­i­cism and pes­simism to give shape to their dreams.

THE FEA­TURE ON NAWAZUD­DIN SID­DIQUI was ab­so­lutely bril­liant. This Bol­ly­wood star proves that tal­ent is all that mat­ters, not fam­ily back­ground, money or how much in­flu­ence one wields in the in­dus­try.

The small-town boy with seem­ingly or­di­nary looks, who spent years fac­ing rejection, has now be­come a force to reckon with in the world’s big­gest film in­dus­try that’s so glam­our-stricken. Isn’t that an irony?

What I liked the most about the in­ter­view was how Nawazud­din has re­mained pos­i­tive through his ini­tial strug­gles and now that he is a suc­cess, he still wants to chal­lenge his tal­ent by ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent kinds of roles and gen­res of films. The word com­pla­cency def­i­nitely does not fig­ure in his dic­tionary.

If not in films, this man can make a ca­reer in the self-help in­dus­try by teach­ing peo­ple how to stay fo­cused and not lose heart when faced with those who al­ways pull you down, never boost you up.

I LOVED THE RE­PORT ‘The Pur­suit of Hap­pi­ness’ (Oc­to­ber 2) this week. It not only made me re­alise the im­por­tance of emo­tional well-be­ing in our lives but also the fact that the key lies in not how much we have, but how much we en­joy.

Thank you Fri­day, for giv­ing me a happy and plea­sur­able read as al­ways.

Nawazud­din is down to earth even though he’s a Bol­ly­wood star Nawazud­din Sid­diqui has proved that tal­ent and a never-say-die spirit trumps glam­our even in Bol­ly­wood
