With every new project, Nawazuddin Siddiqui tries to do something very different and dynamic. The versatile actor who is all set to amaze the audiences with his never-seen-before avatar of a transgender in his much-awaited next, 'Haddi', shared his experiences of working with female directors in an interview that he gave to a leading portal a long ago. Apart from talking about his experiences, he also pointed out some differences between male and female directors.
The actor who rose to fame after starring in Anurag Kashyap's cult crime thriller, 'Gangs Of Wasseypur 2', in his career spanning over 30 years has worked with several notable female directors and filmmakers of Bollywood.
As far as working with female directors is concerned, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has worked with Anusha Rizvi in 'Peepli Live', and he has worked with Debamitra Biswal for 'Motichoor Chaknachoor'.
The actor who impressed his fans and the audiences with his superlative performance in 'Manto', where he played the titular role of Urdu author Saadat Hasan Manto, was also directed by female actor-director, none other than Nandita Das.
Besides working with Anusha Rizvi, Debamitra Biswal and Nandita Das, the 'Sacred Games' star has also worked with Reema Kagti for 'Talaash', for which he garnered positive reviews and appreciation from fans as well as from critics for delivering a scintillating performance in the 2012 Aamir Khan-starrer mystery thriller.
While speaking about his experiences of working with female directors and filmmakers, Nawzuddin said, “I have worked with many renowned female directors and that helped me a great deal. I realised that women look at the world differently, They are far more compassionate and they see beauty in everything. For most men, it’s often about power and control. That also reflected in our relationships. Men tend to be more territorial and unko adhikaar jatana hai, auraton par bhi. The female gaze is kinder and sensitive. I am trying to get that POV (point of view) right.”
The actor who is best known for movies such as 'Haraamkhor', 'Raman Raghav 2.0', 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', 'Manto', 'Manjhi', and 'Gangs of Wasseypur 2', among several others, the natural star, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is turning 49 on May 19.
