The supernatural actor, the man with the brilliant skills, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is impressed with the Badshah of Indian Cinema for making a decision to do a negative role in his latest film ‘Raees.’
Nawaz Bhai said, “What I admire in Shah Rukh the most is that he being a superstar has come out of his comfort zone and has done a dark film like this, which is a rare thing. People (actors) often play safe games (referring to roles and films). Shah Rukh has the daring to do a negative role, it’s a big thing. I admire this quality in him.”
‘Raees’ is the first film to bring both the versatile actors together and this makes Nawazuddin extremely content. “He is very humble, sensitive and a very understanding person. His thoughts inspire me. It’s a big compliment for me when he praises my work. He is an experienced actor, and an actor of his stature praising me is a big compliment for me,”
He was further asked about the film’s fate with King Khan’s fan following, for which he said, “I was confident about the film. Shah Rukh sahab does have a huge fan following not only in India but globally as well. But overall the film has also got a good response because of the story, dialogues. I did not expect people to applaud and whistle. The audience’s appreciation is what matters the most to me. It’s a mass entertainer film, but with a great story,”
Nawaz Bhai also feels that having a background in theatre has a huge count in getting the act proper and understanding the scenes together and better.
Looks like Nawazuddin Siddique enjoyed SRK just as much as the audience enjoyed the love-hate relationship shared between the actors in Raees!
