Mumbai: Nawazuddin Siddiqui Struggle is called the most talented and wonderful actor of Bollywood. He was able to make his mark in the industry after a struggle of about 15 years and has worked with many big filmmakers today. But, this journey was not so easy for Nawazuddin Siddiqui. To reach this point, he gave many big tests and also faced many difficulties. There was a time in his life when he did not have money even for two meals a day. In those days, the actor had to think from where and how he would make arrangements for food.
In such a situation, Nawaz sometimes worked as a watchman and sometimes worked as a chemist. Actually, Nawazuddin was seven-siblings. His father was a farmer and his mother used to do household chores. Even taking the name of films in his family was not considered good. That’s why even Nawaz never thought about cinema. His father wanted him to study and write somehow. Sometimes to run the work, but then that role of a few seconds came in his life, which turned his entire fortune.
Worked in Aamir Khan’s sarfarosh
He got this role in Aamir Khan, Sonali Bendre starrer ‘Sarfarosh’. Nawazuddin Siddiqui had a very small role in this 1999 film. In the beginning, no one was even aware of the fact that he had also worked in Sarfarosh. In his early days, he worked in many small and big films. But, he could not get the recognition he needed from anyone. Then Anurag Kashyap’s eye fell on him.
Gangs of Wasseypur gave recognition
Anurag Kashyap offered him the role of Faizal in ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ and this one role made him a household name. After this, more than one film came to him and Nawaz also left no stone unturned to prove his acting. Today, whenever Nawazuddin is seen in a new role, everyone is surprised to see how easily he gets into every role.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui somehow graduated from Gurukul Kangri University in Haridwar, but still had to wander from door to door for a job.
