Nawazuddin Siddiqui: Can't put labels on my characters
He can morph into any character he chooses to play on screen, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui says he consciously takes up roles that keep him from getting stereotyped
He can morph into any character he chooses to play on screen, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui says he consciously takes up roles that keep him from getting stereotyped. "I have played over 2,000 characters in theatre through seven years. I have a lot of 'masala' to show. I have confidence, which allows me to try different roles. The ones who get scared are those who have nothing left to show. I have a lot of characters stored in my bank," the actor says.
Siddiqui is inspired by roles that showcase the different aspects of human nature. "I like doing grey roles since they have more depth and complexity. I can't do these larger-than-life hero or villain-like characters, because they don't interest me. I hate these two extremes, they don't have any shades. I observe characters from real life and know that people have both good and bad characteristics in them. When you put both of them together, what you get is a complete human being."
The actor will next be seen in Sridevi-starrer 'Mom', followed by 'Munna Michael' and 'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz'.
