Nawazuddin Siddiqui claimed that commercials can be a powerful way to “break the cycle” that an actor could fall into when acting and acknowledged them for opening doors to a whole new realm for him.
Performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui believes that re-inventing himself his acting career will allow you to ensure that you don’t get “jaded” within the world of film. In more than two years, Siddiqui has received acclaim in every film he has appeared in -beginning with his first debut performances on Black Friday, and Kahaani to films that were on his shoulders like Gangs of Wasseypur, Badlapur and Photograph.
The actor stated that He never takes his fans for granted and that’s why his aim is to find “something more” when a character is brought his way.
“It is up to you if you’re challenging your character enough. If you’re doing this then you’re curious. It’s a continuous process. The moment I stop my process, thinking that people will like me regardless because I am an excellent actor and my downfall is about to begin. ‘
“Here is where you could become too relaxed with the praise you receive and it could make you feel depressed. If I take this admiration, that love for granted, then I’m done,” the 47-year-old told PTI.
In a reference to cricket, Siddiqui stated that the fact that a cricketer made a century during his last game, it does not mean that he can begin his next match at 100. “He begins from zero. This is the way acting works. Each film I make whether it’s the big screen masala entertainers , or the so-called artistic films, my method is the same. I begin with the beginning. I learn and then jump into whatever project. This keeps me interested and makes me more open to new opportunities.”
The actor is currently waiting for to release the film upcoming film, Heropanti 2.. The action flick, which is starring Tiger Shroff, is among those films that seem to be something different from the Siddiqui style of films that are usually filmed at a lower budget, however, they almost always provide an engaging cinematic experience.
The actor has said that he is aware that his appearances on commercial films such as Kick as well as Heropanti 2 can irk a portion of his fans.
“A segment of my loyal fans criticize me when I perform commercials and ask, ‘Why is this happening?’ However, with each Heropanti 2, I also have No Lands Men, watch the film and then… It was a pleasure to made Manto and it was beautiful, however, when it didn’t work it hurt me.
“When you see a solid, thought-provoking filmthat has been made with many hours of research isn’t watched by the general public it makes you feel like “Forget it, I will try the next kind of film’. However, hum aadat se maboor hai, I’ll keep making the kind of film I like and find a way to balance it,” said the filmmaker.
Siddiqui stated that commercials are an excellent way to “break the mold” which one could be sucked into when acting and acknowledged that they have always opened doors to a whole new universe for his.
Another thing that helps what helps, as the actor explained, is the exposure that big films provide to his smaller films.
“I have never been a fan of commercial films. If the big ones make profits, my lesser-known films will also be produced because money is always flowing. Commercial films draw a large public and if even 10 percent of this section of people come to my smaller films, they will be a success,” he added.
Directed by choreographer-filmmaker Ahmed Khan, Heropanti 2 is scheduled to be released on April 29.
