Not to deny, it is important to have a perfect body if you playing a lead role in the Bollywood industry!
It is a common belief that to be a Hero you should have a perfect body, silky hairs, good looks, etc. Without this how can someone be a Hero?
While thinking of the main character in any movie, we personate a character with good looks, an attractive body, an amazing hairstyle and of course his romantic skills.
Today we will talk about the actor who has broken this stereotype and who gave us the real definition of Hero: Nawazuddin Siddique
A man from a small town, who was born in the year 1974 in Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh. Out of the 8 siblings, he is the eldest one and has many responsibilities on his shoulder.
After completing his graduation, he joined National School of drama in Delhi.after which he moved to Mumbai to try his luck in Bollywood and made his debut with a small role in Sarfarosh, followed by many small roles in movies like Ram Gopal Varma’s School, Jungle, Munnabhai MBBS, etc.
From 2004, his career took a steep slope and, he didn’t get any roles to play in Bollywood, as a result, he couldn’t afford to pay his house rent. One senior at NSD(National School of Drama) allowed him to stay with him but he had to cook meals for him.
After many years of struggle, he got a break in the movie Kahaani, where he played the role of an intelligence officer.
I personally started following him with one of my favorite movies “Gangs of Wasseypur” where he played the role of a gangster.
Soon, his skills started getting appreciated and he became a constant in its sequel.
He was praised the most in the movie “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” where he played the role of a famous Pakistani reporter “Chand Nawab” and in Manjhi-the mountain man, he was praised for his roles.
He is also awarded as “best actor” at New York Indian Film Festival for the movie based in Gujarati titled “Haraamkhor”.
He got the opportunity to perform the role of Balasaheb Thackeray in his biopic movie Thackeray.
One of the biggest hits was his Netflix’s original web series “Sacred Games “where he took his fan following to the next level by his role of “Gaitonde Bhai”.
He has a struggling story but without that how could anyone enjoy the feeling of achieving one’s dreams.
People usually try to stay in their comfort zone with a decent salary job instead of working and struggling in there passion because of ‘n’ number of reasons and responsibilities and pull themselves into a life which they never wanted. Many times this makes them frustrated towards their job, personal life, relationships, etc.
Even after having the responsibility of 7 younger siblings, Nawazuddin Siddiqui decided to struggle in the field he always wanted to be and now he is the proud eldest son of his family.
The take away from his story is that we just need to be passionate and dedicated towards our dream and sooner or later we will be able to taste success.
