Born and brought up in a small town in UP, Nawazuddin Siddiqui hailed from a family which struggled to make two ends meet. But fast forward to 2017, this man has held his own as a versatile actor having worked with all the three Khans. Nawaz after picking up a handful of odd jobs including working as a chemist and as a watchman, finally enrolled in the National School of Drama and ever since there has been no looking back.
With films like Sarfarosh, Black Friday and Peepli Live he established himself as a “dark horse to watch out for.” Later films like Kahaani and Gangs of Wasseypur were turning points in his career. And then came films like Talaash, Badlapur, The Lunchbox, Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Raees. The journey continues.
Such was the impact the actor made that even the biggest magazines took major interest in his story. Magazines like GQ, Forbes and Society covered his journey. While the GQ Luxury Issue hailed him as “India’s Finest Actor,” Society covered his journey to the big league and Forbes glorified his inspiring story in a special cover titled “The Importance of Being Nawazuddin Siddiqui.” Nawaz is on a roll, mind it!
