Did Nawazuddin Siddiqui reject a film with Salman Khan?

Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Salman Khan‘s camaraderie in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘ was loved by all. The two were great together on screen and naturally, everyone wanted to see them together again.

The same was the thought of the makers of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif‘s next venture, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ when they approached Nawaz to play a character in the film. The talented actor however had to turn it down citing date issues. News has it that producer Aditya Chopra was very keen on having Nawaz in the film, and had also reportedly offered him huge bucks.

Nawazuddin had to however turn it down as he was shooting for Nandita Das’ ‘Manto’ when the shooting for ‘TZH’ was happening in Austria last month. According to an insider, “Abbas has roped in a dashing Iranian actor to step into Nawaz’s shoes.”

Nawaz and Salman have worked together in two films in the past,  ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Kick‘ . It would have been quite interesting to see them together again. But looks like, we all will have to wait some more.
