"Will work in Hollywood if the script is right" - Nawazzuddin Siddiqui

Not only known for being an incredibly versatile actor but one who so naturally portrays challenging and "out of the ordinary" characters, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has certainly left an impression on the Indian film industry.

Reportedly, Siddiqui is willing to pursue Hollywood as long as he is playing roles that do not compromise on a substantial amount of screen time.

The length of the role is a priority of Siddiqui’s as this is what he believes to be an underlying strength in portraying a character: “I select films based on the length…not on the depth of the character because I believe I can bring out the depth in any character,”

The year 2012 was phenomenal for Nawazuddin Siddiqui as he truly demonstrated his versatility through essaying a number of various roles.

Some examples include his portrayal of Faizal Khan, a troubled marijuana addict in Anurag Kashyap’s "Gangs of Wasseypur", the role of mute Jethu in Mangesh Hadawale’s Rajasthani based "Dehk Indian Circus" and Temur, a pimp’s deputy in Reema Kagti’s "Talaash".

2012 was also a year of recognition during which he won seven prestigious awards including- "The Special Jury Award" at the "National Film Awards", "Screen Award for Best Supporting Actor" at the "Screen Awards" and "Award for Best Actor" at the "New York Indian Film Festival".

Having survived as a struggling actor who went through long phases of barely being able to afford food, or afford a train ticket, it has been a challenging journey to critically acclaimed recognition for Siddiqui.

Although Siddiqui can now be imagined in various roles, there was a phase when he was being offered "clichéd", "stereotypical" roles such as a washer-man, or a watch man, or at the annoyance of many actors- an extra.

For Nawazuudin Siddiqui who has broken the mould of stereotypes, another requirement for embarking on Hollywood is that the role must not be clichéd.

Practicing what he preaches, Siddiqui will be next seen in Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s film “Anwar Ka Ajab Qissa” and Dashrat Manjhi’s “Mountain Man.”

“Anwar Ka Ajab Qissa” has been described by Siddiqui as ‘experimental’ through which he essays the character of Anwar, a small time detective.

“Mountain Man” will be a true demonstration and celebration of Siddiqui’s versatility as he plays the same character living through various age groups and different phases of life.
