Nawazuddin Siddiqui: I am the only one here experimenting

Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ is doing quite well at the box office. The movie which is directed by Kushan Nandy, has received mixed reviews, but Nawazuddin’s performance is being praised. However, the character that the actor plays is nothing new for us. We have seen him playing such characters earlier as well.

When we asked him if he thinks that audiences are expecting him to experiment with his characters, the actor said, “I am the only one here (in Bollywood) who is experimenting. I am doing ‘Manto’ at the same time I am doing ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’. In ‘MOM’, I had a different role. My character (in ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’) is not similar to ‘Gang Of Wasseypur’. Talking about the gun, I have used it in two to three films. A hero also keeps on doing same role since 30 to 40 years, but no one tells him. But, he is actually typecast. When we see it in large perception, our Bollywood heroes are similar. If it is the demand of cinema that I do different types of roles be it in ‘MOM’ or ‘Munna Michael’ or ‘Raees’. In ‘Raees’, I was a cop in this (‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’) in this I was a gangster, in ‘Monto’ I am playing the titular role, thanks to industry that they are providing variety of roles. What will be better than that?” [sic]

After the release of ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’, Nawaz took to Twitter to reveal the budget of the movie. When we asked why did he tweeted the budget, the actor said, “People were assuming different budgets. So, it was to clear and get the actual facts in front of people. Till a small film like this doesn’t get a support, people like you and I won’t support small films, then who will do it? If a big film is made with a budget of Rs 70 crore and earns Rs 100 crore, then everyone says it’s a hit, but, at least see that it was made with a budget of Rs 70 crore. A small film, made with a budget of Rs 3 crore, but people don’t even know the budget and then by saying something or the other thing they make it a flop. A small film starts its run from Monday.” (Also Read: Nawazuddin-starrer ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ not leaked online)
