Happy Birthday Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Published

on

New Delhi, May 19: Son of a farmer from a small UP town called Budhana brilliantly made his appearance in bollywood movies.Today he turns 43, achieved many awards for remarkable performances in the films.

He is a trained actor,who interprets the medium in a deeply personal way with his natural looks and efforts.Of course, much of that maturity of the craft comes from his own personal failures.

Nawazuddin, a TV reject, was no more than a junior artist on a film set. He agreed to even one-minute film roles hoping that the “one-minute role would lead to two-minute ones.”

Some extra-ordinary roles of Nawazuddin Siddiqui:-

Kahaani
In this movie, he has portrayed a deputy-in-charge of Intelligence Bureau (IB), A. Khan. The character is very aggressive, commanding, arrogant and rude. His stature has shown aggression, arrogance through his voice, energy, acting and dialogue delivery.

Manjhi: The Mountain Man
A romantic love story where Siddiqui plays the role of a man who dug a mountain using only a hammer and a chisel to carve a road through a treacherous mountain for twenty-two years because her better half slipped on it and died.

Gangs of Wasseypur
A story of vengeance by a coal mafia Faisal Khan. How he romantically talks to his wife played by Huma Qureshi makes for a role which keeps you hooked.

The Lunchbox
In one of his best performances in the movie. His annoying, comic smile and persistence, mirroring a simple man called Shaikh made his role powerful.

Abhishek starts shooting for ‘Bob Biswas’ in Kolkata

Mumbai: Abhishek Bachhan has started shooting for his upcoming movie “Bob Biswas” in Kolkata. The film is a spin-off of “Kahaani”, and features the poker-faced contract killer Bob Biswas from the Vidya Balan-starrer.

Abhishek shared the news on Instagram early on Friday. He posted a photo of a pair of old-fashioned glasses and an old Motorola handset which were used by contract killer Bob Biswas in the 2012 thriller.

Reminding the audience of Bob’s iconic dialogue from the film, “Nomoshkar! Ek minute…,” which used to be followed by a gruesome murder, the actor wrote on Instagram: “Nomoshkar! #BobBiswas #dayone”.

The actor is expected to shoot in Kolkata for 42 days for the film which marks the directorial debut of Sujoy Ghosh’s daughter Diya Annapurna Ghosh. Shoot has begun in South Kolkata and Abhishek seems to be enjoying the city’s winter as he tweeted: “I love Kolkata.”

Abhishek also took to Twitter to share a picture of the film’s clapboard and captioned: “Lights. Camera. Nomoshkar! Shoot day one. #BobBiswas Here we go!! @IChitrangda @ghosh09 @iamsrk Produced by @gaurikhan @sujoy_g @_GauravVerma @RedChilliesEnt #BoundScript”.

Noted Bengali film actor Saswata Chatterjee, who received immense appreciation for his flawless portrayal of Bob Biswas in “Kahaani”, was initially approached for the role of the upcoming film, claims reports.

Netizens had expressed their desire to see Chatterjee in the role soon after the film was announced in November last year. However, the actor reportedly could not come on board due to date issues.

The film is being produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment along with Sujoy Ghosh’s Bound Script Production and is expected to release later this year.

In an earlier interview, Abhishek Bachhan had shared: “I can’t speak Bangla properly even though I understand the language.” We’re sure 42 days in Kolkata will teach the actor a lot more Bangla than just “Nomoshkar! Ek minute…”

Novelty inspires me: Ayushmann Khurrana

Ayushmann Khurrana

Kolkata: Known for portraying ordinary men – often flawed and insecure – with almost no one character being similar to the other, Ayushmann Khuranna says novelty of any kind inspires him.

“Novelty inspires me, any kind, any shape or form. It could be the first attempt in Hindi cinema. That inspires me.

“Any person living a mundane life, 9 to 5, and still motivated to live, that inspires me, because as an artist you have a very vibrant life. You live a different character each day,” Khurrana said during an interaction at the Tata Steel Kolkata Literary Meet on Thursday.

Khurrana, whose next film ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ based on homosexuality is slated to hit the theatres on February 21, said he has prepared for each of his vastly diverse roles by being with the milieu and also banked on his exposure to Hindi theatre as also the convent education he received.

“The idea is to be one with the milieu, get grasp of the colloquial jargons, twangs, and India is a country where every ten kilometres, the dialect changes.

“I am glad that I have done Hindi theatre, Hindi public speaking, though I was convent educated. So that made me quite a linguist. That exposure was quite early in life,” he said during the session at the iconic Victoria Memorial Hall premises.

From essaying the role a sperm donor in his debut film Vicky Donor, to depicting a man with erectile dysfunction in ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, or a blind pianist in the 2018 thriller ‘Andhadhun’, Khurrana has been hailed as having “cornered the market when it comes to playing flawed, insecure men with confidence issues”.

The films, generally set in small towns amid middle class environs, have time and again dealt with taboo subjects, and are sprinkled with liberal doses of wit, humour and comic situations. The much feted actor says all of these are essential for the movies of his genre.

“By default these characters are set in middle class, small towns. That’s where the conflict is there. In urban centres, like Delhi, Mumbai or Kolkata they are receptive to taboo subjects. So where is the conflict then?

“In the middle class society, we’re like the flag bearers of morality, that’s where the humour emanates, when you are stuck in that conventional dogma. And we are not trying to make people laugh as the situation is funny. For the male lead or the main lead, it is tragic,” he said.

As for the upcoming film, Khurrana says he has a lot of friends who are part of the LGBTQ (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and queers) community. “And it’s a journey. I am learning every minute”.

The 35 year old actor gave credit to the audience for receiving well his films themed on progressive subjects.

“The choices I am making are going down well with the audience. Audience is also evolving and receiving well these subjects which are progressive.

“Earlier these used to be for art house cinema stuff. But now these middle of the road cinemas – a great collaboration of content and commerce – are evoking good responses,” he said.

‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ would be another case study, the actor says, calling it the first film dealing with homosexuality in the realm of the commercial Hindi cinema.

“In parallel or arthouse cinema we have seen films dealing with homosexaulity. But those were the films catering to the converted. The audience watching these films are within the LGBT community already.

“We want to reach out to people, who are averse to homosexuality. This is the first Hindi mainstream commercial film in India based on homosexuality. We hope it will at least usher in the conversation and have a discussion on LGBTQ,” Khurrana added.
