After delivering the hugely successful show, Sacred Games, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has worked on back-to-back projects. The actor starred in Raat Akeli Hai and Serious Men, which were both critically acclaimed. In a recent interview, the actor said that he does not like to play the same character over and over again as he would get bored.
He added saying, “If the part offered to me, doesn’t work, then I don’t look at the rest of the project. Story aur sab kuch, phir bhaata nahin hai. I don’t want to be the same; an actor, who has been playing a hero for 35 years! If I repeat my characters, I would get bored and would leave this line of work in two years. That’s why I plan my films in a way that they are different from each other so I have fun shooting them and the audience can look forward to a new me.”
The actor also said that he believes an actor can only be truly successful by experimenting with their roles throughout their journey. He said, “Initially, you get some films in which you stand out and people notice you, so they become game changers movies. But to depend on them and to think that ab nikal padi gaadi, galat thought hai. Every film gives you a different experience and you have to prove in every film. If you get a century in one match, you have to deliver a good score in the next one too. You can’t rest on your laurels. I think every film should be treated with the same respect and and zeal which is how you make a name. Giving one or two hit films don’t make you an actor. In fact, being consistent and experimenting with roles throughout your career proves and makes you an actor.”
