Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s recent tweet hinted he faced racism in Bollywood has created a stir. After posting a cryptic tweet about being discriminated in the film industry, now he has clarified that his tweet was just a reply. While speaking on the tweet at the press conference of his next release Munna Michael, Nawaz said, “I tweeted what I felt. Someone had said something to me and that tweet is a reply to that.”
When asked if the whole industry is like that, the MOM star said, “No, the industry is not like that. But that person belongs to the industry, whose reply I have given.”
“I have been hearing that since childhood but still I am still here and the industry has accepted me. When I was young and I expressed my desire to become an actor, people around me said, ‘Have you looked at yourself?’. Even later, when I used to go to offices in Mumbai, everyone used to tell me that I don’t look like an actor. So these things are there everywhere, not just in Bollywood,” he further added.
Here’s what he had tweeted:
Tiger Shroff, while sharing thoughts on the same issue, said, “Nawaz sir has a huge fan following and wherever I go with him, female fans are more eager to meet the Gangs Of Wasseypur star as they are crazy about him. It’s fascinating that women are crazy about Nawaz sir.”
He will be seen as a contract killer in his next Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. The film is set to hit the theatre on August 25. Nawazudding will also be essaying the role of Saadat Hasan Manto in Nandita Das’ short film titled In Defence of Freedom.
