One of the finest actors of the present day cinema world, Nawazuddin Siddhiqui today shared some of the untouched aspects of his life as he went on to say that one of the directors made him realise that being dark skinned is a big issue as he cannot be paired with any fair co-actor.
Considered to be one of the unorthodox superstars of Bollywood, Nawazuddin has been highly-lauded for his role in “Mom” and is looking at another crowd-pleasing role as a hoodlum dancer in “Munna Michael”.
Actor took on to the micro blogging website and tweeted: “Thank you for making me realise that I cannot be paired along with the fair and handsome because I’m dark and not good looking.” This Tweet came subsequent to the issue that took place a week before when casting director Sanjay Chouhan spoke about how co-actors cast with Nawazuddin have to be dark-skinned.
Said the actor with a deep sigh: “I was reacting to what I read about this gentleman’s statement on the kind of actors I need to be cast with. I found the statement very strange. Did filmmakers actually consider the colour of my co-stars’ skin before casting them with me? Yeh ladki gori hai yeh nahin chalegi…yeh ladka saawla hai isskobanao Nawaz ka dost… Is that how actors are cast in our films? I thought actors were chosen for suitability and merit….Anyway, this gentleman says he was misquoted.”
