No one among the fans who have loved Bollywood films and actors can disagree with the fact that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the very finest and extremely loved Bollywood actors. He has entertained and earned fans through his phenomenal performance in movies like Gangs Of Wasseypur 1 & 2, Talaash, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and many more.
But the actor has recently opened up about his disappointment with the Bollywood Industry. In an interaction with Times Now Navbharat India Economic Conclave, the actor spoke about how bad he feels about the industry people only talking in English on sets.
He raised his concern against the filmmakers who are working on making a Hindi film but won’t talk in Hindi. He also said that everyone including the directors and assistant directors too discusses everything in English even when at various times actors don’t even understand what’s going on.
“Hamare yaha pe sirf aise hai ki, Hindi film industry, Bollywood mein aisa hai ki Director pata nahi konsi tangency pe baat kar raha hai, assistant kuch ‘you know’ apni kheer bana raha hai, actor bilkul akela khada hua hai. Ek jo acha actor hai, theatre ka actor, jis bichare ko English vinglish nahi ati, lekin samajh hi nahi pa raha hai. Idhar udhar dekh raha hai, ho kya raha hai, chal kya raha hai, ussike character ke baarein mein baat karre hai, usse samajh hi nahi aa raha…”
Not only this, but he also applauded the South Indian Industry as the artists there talk only in their regional languages and are proud of them. He quoted,
“South mein kya hai, Tamil mein baat karte hain, proud feel karte hain. Kannada hain toh Kannada mein baat karte hain… Saare writers bhi Kannada mein baat kar rahe hain, director bhi, saare local hain. Sabko samajh aa rahi hain sabki baatein..”
After all this, Nawaz also took a dig at Bollywood actors who declare their films superhit without any proof and stats. He said that when a film is released on OTT Platform. Only streaming platforms have the information. They know how many viewers are tuning in. Neither you nor I will ever know. Talking about the same, Siddiqui stated,
“Aajkal toh actors bhi decide kar lete hain ke meri film hit hai, chaar uske dost hain Insta pe, paise-waise de diye..”
The video of Nawazzuddin speaking his heart out about Bollywood is going viral on social media. The fans and netizens are applauding his brave and honest words.
