Recalling the time when he worked with Nawazuddin in the 2003 film “Munna Bhai M.B.B.S”, Hirani said here on Wednesday: “He acted really well and I told him that ‘Nawaz, you are a very good actor’. But in my head, I never thought that Nawazuddin Siddiqui would become such a huge actor that he is today.”

In the film, Nawazuddin played a thief who pickpocketed from late actor Sunil Dutt’s character, who in turn saved him from public rage and taught him a life lesson.

According to the filmmaker, the introductory scene of Sunil Dutt was initially not a part of the script but he added it after a suggestion from the film’s producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

Interestingly, the scene was inspired by his real-life incident of a childhood memory of his father.
